What parking restrictions are there for blue badge holders on double yellow lines?
Blue Badge holders are entitled to park on single and double yellow lines for up to 3 hours in the UK, unless there is a sign saying that loading or unloading is only allowed. They must also follow the general parking rules and regulations, such as not parking in front of driveways or junctions.
However, there are some specific restrictions on parking on double yellow lines, even for Blue Badge holders. For example, Blue Badge holders cannot park on double yellow lines:
- Within 15 metres of a junction
- In front of a bus stop
- In front of a zebra crossing
- In front of a taxi rank
- In front of a loading or unloading bay
If a Blue Badge holder parks on double yellow lines in one of these prohibited areas, they may be issued with a parking ticket.
Blue Badge holders should also be aware that there may be other restrictions on parking on double yellow lines in their local area. It is always best to check the local authority's website or contact them directly for more information.
Here are some tips for Blue Badge holders when parking on double yellow lines:
- Make sure that you are not parking in a prohibited area.
