how far from an intersection can you safely park a car

California state guidelines say cars should not park closer than 10 feet from intersections. That distance makes it easier for pedestrians to see approaching cars and also for car drivers to see pedestrians in crosswalks. Should Palo Alto enforce these guidelines? Seems to me that 10 feet would greatly improve pedestrian safety around town.
San Francisco is marking the 10 foot zone with red painted no parking curbs: Web Link
