Is it Illegal to park on a highway in Georgia?

Under Georgia law, it is illegal to park on the side of a highway.

This is understandable given the safety issues associated with doing so. Of course, there are situations where you may need to pull over for reasons including, but not limited to, a flat tire, running out of gas, engine trouble, sleepiness or fatigue, and the need to get something out of the back of your vehicle. However, anytime a vehicle is parked on the side of a highway, there is an increased risk that an accident may occur. As such, voluntarily parking on the side of a highway should be avoided at all costs. Emergencies do happen, and if the need to pull over does arise, it is important to take all steps possible to protect yourself, inclusive of making your vehicle as visible as possible to all passing drivers.
