Can I Park In The Fire Lane?

There's a high tendency for people in my apartment complex to park illegally just to "run in for a second," even when there's an open space not 12 feet away. Of course, "a second" is frequently a loose translation of "10 minutes," during which time they block others from leaving.

I've noticed this phenomenon more and more in parking lots everywhere I go, indicating a widespread, misguided belief that there's some individual time allotment to park illegally, not to mention the pervasive misconception that turning on one's hazard lights negates the law.

So, in a comical fit of annoyance last night, I whipped up this informative flowchart for these misguided parkers.
