Re: New Parking Regulations

Make sure you park close to the kerb too ! !

They will have the power to enforce some additional parking contraventions including parking
more than 50cm from the kerb.

so to be on the safe side, make sure your tyres are touching the kerb.... ! !  Roll eyes
that will take some doing in tight parking slots with not much room to manouver back and forth. Cheesy

Then they will try doing you for parking on the kerb.

That has just reminded me of a news item in my local newspaper a couple of months ago.
A resident saw parking enforcement officers putting parking tickets on cars that where parked partly on the pavement along the busy A61 through Birdwell in Barnsley.
When asked why only selected cars where being ticketed they where told that "the ones being ticketed are parked with more than 2/3rds of the width of the car over the pavement. Less than that and they are OK".
The resident took a photo of the PEO's van, which was published in the newspaper, more than 2/3rds of the van over the pavement. I wonder if they ticketed themselves ?? Wink
