Is This Legal Parking In Grand Junction?

What are the parking laws here in Grand Junction? 

I have seen this a few times in Grand Junction. Is parking like this legal? I didn’t think you could park on the opposite side of the way your vehicle is facing.

So, I decided to look up the laws and regulations on parking in Grand Junction. Holy cow! There are SO many different codes and amendments and sections I got a headache, This is Chapter 10.04 Traffic and Vehicles.

After a while, I found something that I think relates to this situation. It’s Chapter 10.04.080:

10.04.080 Parking at curb or edge of a roadway.

(a)    Except where angle parking is permitted by this code and, in the case of State highways, is approved by the State Department of Highways, and except as otherwise provided by this code every vehicle stopped or parked upon a two-way roadway shall be so stopped or parked with the right-hand wheels parallel to and within 12 inches of the right-hand curb or as close as practicable to the right edge of the right-hand shoulder.

(b)    Except as otherwise provided by this code, every vehicle stopped or parked upon a one-way roadway shall be so stopped or parked parallel to the curb or edge of the roadway, in the direction of authorized traffic movement, with its right-hand wheels within 12 inches of the right-hand curb or as close as practicable to the right edge of the right-hand shoulder or with its left-hand wheels within 12 inches of the left-hand curb or as close as practicable to the left edge of the left-hand shoulder.

Not sure if this answers the question or not? Section B mentions ‘vehicle shall be parked….in the direction of authorized traffic movement.

SO, does anyone have a simple answer to this? My eyes and head hurt from reading through all of these laws.
