Roadside Parking Rules

The UK Highway Code parking regulations mean you are likely to receive a ticket if you do not park your car correctly.


The United Kingdom Highway Code roadside parking law stipulates that unless it is absolutley necessary, ideally you should avoid making a stop on the highway as a chosen place to park your vehicle.

Instead, motorists should use specially marked bays identified by white lines or use off-street parking areas wherever possible.

These guidelines should be followed if you need to stop a car on the roadside during the day time but there are further restrictions for parking a vehicle at night time.
