Drivers may be able to use legal loophole to park on yellow lines and not get a ticket


    Generally, single yellow lines mean no waiting or parking during the times shown on nearby signs or at the entrance of a controlled parking zone. There are no standard times or rules so drivers must always check the signs before waiting or parking.

    This can be up to three hours, providing they have their badge clearly on display.

    These exceptions won’t always apply though, so motorists are advised to check for local signs or kerb edge markings.

    If there are pairs of short yellow lines over the kerb edge, no one is allowed to load at any time.

    Even with a blue badge, drivers cannot park anywhere where there are loading restrictions.

    Fines issued in London typically cost £130 or £80 depending on the offence.

    Government data shows that parking fines given out by councils outside of London tend to be at a lower rate.

    Similarly, single red lines mean drivers can’t park, stop or load during specified time periods that should be displayed clearly on surrounding signs.

    A double red line means no stopping, parking or loading at any time, and is generally seen in larger urban areas.
