On street parking
Illegally parked vehicles
Illegally parked vehicles can cause congestion and hinder other road users. They can also inconvenience everyone including legitimate parkers, delivery vehicles, buses and of course emergency vehicles. Dangerous parking affects the safety of all road users.
Road markings such as yellow lines, loading bays, bus stops, taxi ranks and controlled parking zones indicate that some sort of restriction applies.
Double yellow lines mean no parking at any time.
single yellow lines will have a sign nearby explaining the restrictions, if in doubt check the signs.
As a driver you are responsible for making sure that your vehicle is parked properly and is not causing an obstruction. If you have followed the regulations you will not be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.
