I received a ticket that says Against the Flow. Is it a mistake?

Parking against the flow of traffic is prohibited by city Ordinance 72.06 Method of Parking (below) and the State of Arkansas.

72.06 Method of Parking Pursuant to A.C.A. ’27-51-1301, a vehicle parked on any street in the city shall be parked on the right-hand side of the street, headed in the direction of traffic with its right-hand wheels parallel to and within 18 inches of the curb, except where streets have been marked for angle parking, and except that, on one-way streets, vehicles may be parked on the left-hand side of the street, unless parking is prohibited on such side. In every case, a vehicle shall be parked entirely within any lines or markings on the street designating parking spaces.

Parking against the flow creates an unsafe traffic condition because it requires vehicles to cross a lane of oncoming traffic when exiting the parking space.
