THE OFFICIAL HIGHWAY CODE
Waiting and parking
The Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales. It's essential reading for
everyone. Here's a reminder about waiting and parking.
DO NOT stop or park:
near a school entrance
anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services
at or near a bus or tram stop or taxi rank
on the approach to a level crossing or tramway crossing
opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking
near the brow of a hill or hump bridge
opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked
where you would force other traffic to enter a tram lane
where you would obstruct cyclists’ use of cycle facilities
except when forced to do so by stationary traffic.
