Hello to all.
I checked the sticky and it said 'technical discussions...legal subjects' so i hope I'm in the right place.

I've Attached a link to Google maps of the street in question.

These are the rear doors to a row of shops, Argos being the end one.
Everyone always parked there, as the link shows, but now the council say they will ticket anyone who does, so nobody parks.
The kerb is dropped all the way along, with no double yellow 'no waiting' lines.
The kerb at the other side of the road does have double yellow 'no waiting' lines.
Apart from a couple of 'loading only' signs on the wall, and the faded white 'loading only' painted on the floor in two places, I can't see any other signs.

My first question is, are parking tickets enforceable with this basic signage?

My second question is, I have a blue badge, is there anything to stop blue badge holders parking on the double yellows? It's handy when buying anything heavy at Argos, which you collect at the back door to put in the car.

Many thanks,

Tom

The DYL signify no waiting at any time. loading is an exemption, but it becomes your burden to prove loading. collecting pre ordered goods from argos, providing a car was need ed to carry them would be OK buying a watch for instance would not.

But beware the police don't ticket you for the no motor vehicles

How the **** did I and everyone else not notice that big sign!?
I suppose that cancels out any reason for contesting a ticket, as we shouldn't be there in the first place.
Thank you very much. icon_redface.gif

Not necessarily so.
"Except for Access"
One obvious need for access is the car park.
Another may well be the loading bays behind Argos.... what do the Argos signs say please.
Looking at streetview, some of the parked cars have significant overhang onto the true footway, they are at risk of a contravention due to the DYLs

Dunno I'd like to risk the BB on the DYLs. While that does provide an exemption, could you truly say that you were there "for access"
