    Parking Exemptions

    Hi everybody, I recall reading somewhere that in service Military Vehicles had parking exemptions, but I can't for the life of me find where. Can anyone help? To my understanding there are general exemptions which apply to Royal Mail, Military, Utility and Emergency Vehicles. I'm looking for the actual paragraph/act that grants the exemption. I have searching on the internet but can only can find local by-laws. Thank you
  2. Today, I was at my local speedway match and I parked my car on the pavement with only 2 wheels up on the kerb, and there was enough room for people with buggys and disabled people to still use. When I came back out of the stadium to get into my car there was a piece of paper on my windscreen, took it off and looked at it which states "Please respect the roadway when parking Local Police have been in attendance".The note isnt from the police themselves just the speedway company. I know that 4 wheels on the pavement is a no-no,and there is no single or double yellow lines, there is no sign to say no parking and nothing to say that the council has been given these new powers to stop cars parking on pavements. so I'm a bit confused as to how I done anything wrong. Can someone please help/explain and its in glasgow. Thanks
  3. A police officer issued an astonishing 27 tickets in just ONE HOUR to badly parked cars in Birmingham. Full Story - Birmingham Mail I know Bordesley Green and the surrounding areas quite well, people park where they want, where they see a space they park, regardless if it is illegal or not. Nice to see this police officer cracking down!
  4. Morning all, Had a look around and couldn't find anywhere suitable to really post this to ask the question... The below image has been floating around the net recently (primarily Facebook) and i am wonder what the legal stance is on it - is it correct or not?

    Council Parking Signage

    Yesterday I noticed some strange no-parking signage and I was wondering about its enforceability. I'm just curious - I was parked elsewhere. Both the attached images are taken from different streets just outside an area labelled "parking controlled zone" with the normal signage and yellow lines, but within an adjacent area with similar signs that read "Restricted zone - parking only in marked bays" or something similar which has no yellow lines. In the first, the only markings relating to parking are rectangular white signs repeated regularly which read "WARNING Parking on [road name] is prohibited, offenders will be issued a penalty charge notice. [Name and contact details of local council]" (definitely refers to a PCN). The picture I've attached is from Google Streetview and when it was taken the signs referred to clamping instead of a PCN - but otherwise they are identical. In the second image (on a different road) a small yellow sign is attached to a lamp post which reads "Restricted zone [no parking sign] at any time". In neither case are there any road markings (e.g. yellow lines). I'm more interested in the street with the white signs - these are repeated regularly but are not accompanied by any no parking symbols, yellow signs, or road markings. To be honest, they look more like private signs, except that they are clearly marked with the local council's details.

    "Blocked" Driveway

    Someone parks their car in a slightly iffy manor, it's hanging about a foot over a 12 foot dropped kerb driveway. The owner of said driveway can still get on and off without issue but as he pays his council tax he calls police to complain. VRM is run trough PNC and an RO is found. They don't live locally and the phone number found on the systems is not connecting. Who (if anyone!) is supposed to deal with this? Police or council? No yellow lines in place, only slightly blocking driveway. Same situation, except car is completely blocking driveway meaning the property owner can't get his car out. Unlawful obstruction of the highway so we lift the car and bill the RO? Or de we pass to council to deal with as it's a parking issue?
  7. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2846498/Police-officers-park-double-yellow-lines-shopping-burgers-Tesco.html We can all be forgiven for craving a bite to eat from time-to-time at work. But for two police officers the urge proved too much - as they were photographed parking their car on double-yellow lines before one nipped into a Tesco Express. The pair were left red-faced when a member of the public snapped the officer returning to the vehicle armed with what appeared to be a pack of burgers from the store. Public perception boys...
  8. Hi All, We have moved into a property that was offered up with a 2-car driveway and parking on the premises. The roadside at the driveway has an elongated 'H' denoting no parking across the driveway. One would have to be blind not to see both cars parked directly adjacent to the driveway. However, we are constantly battling with morons that park across the driveway preventing both our egress and access to our own property. Ealing Council say that it's a Police matter but when we call the Police we are told that parking issues are Council's problem. Please can someone tell me who is responsible for policing this? It won't be long before this comes to blows with the offenders. Thanks, GB
