You are probably better parking next to a building than here.

Fire lanes are specifically designated and marked areas. There's no fire codes that prohibit parking "near the building".

You can be ticketed for parking on the other side of the red curb (fire zone). It happens, but not often.

Dont do it at Deerbrook mall. you will get a nasty letter from mall security telling you to park in the bike parking on the far side of the mall. Went to pick something up real fast that was in will call. came backput to have security there putting a note on my bike. would have taken 3 times as long to park in bike parking and walk to the otherside of the mall. i was in there for about 10min and parked way out of the way.

I think situation and time sometimes play a role. I was parking in front of Kroger one time in like the first spot so it can be seen easier. The officer doing security that day said hey pull your bike up best like right by the front door, not blocking anyone. Told me don't wanna out there around all those idiots. I laughed and thanked him. Didn't ever expect that.

I parked infront of wal mart like this all the time and finally asked a cop outside one day. His response was, "I don't have a problem with it and no cop should since it's private property. Management on the other hand is another story."

It's not illegal against a traffic enforcement. It's against fire code and evacuation codes, so then to be fined in that aspect is on the business and MUCH MORE expensive. So the business can get fined and sue you for the cost of the fine which will be in the 10's of thousands.

You are no doubt right but many buildings similar to the one the OP posted have a fire lane all the way across the front.
By parking in one of those little corners like he indicated you are still, technically, in the fire lane. That's what I meant.
If there is no fire lane in front of the building then it would be just up to the mgmt.
I been doing it for years, fire lane or not and never had a problem but strictly by the book, in some cases it would be illegal.

It's not a sidewalk as defined by the transportation code, so it's ok.

It's not illegal to be an inconsiderate lazy person either.

Does the Fire Marshal use the transportation code or the fire code for enforcement?

So many different opinions, I always wonder about it too but I'd never park at the mall. Can't trust 'em.
