This week I thought I’d blog about another type of parking restriction and have chosen to write about what those of us who work in parking, call a ‘single, single’ – which is a single yellow line with a single kerb marking.
As I’m sure you all know, a single yellow line means no waiting at any time during the hours shown on the yellow time plate. However with the addition of a single kerb marking (like the one shown below) the parking restriction changes as it also means that loading or unloading is not allowed during the times shown on the nearby black and white time plate.
As there are two restrictions in place (the single yellow line and the single kerb marking) there will be two time plates, like the ones shown below. The yellow time plate applies to the single yellow line and the white time plate applies to the single kerb marking.
So, if you come across a ‘single, single’ restriction it means:
- No waiting at any time during the hours shown on the yellow time plate.
- No loading and unloading is during the hours shown on the white time plate
- No stopping for passengers to board or alight allowed during the times shown on the white time plate.
- No stopping/parking for disabled badge holders during the times shown on the white plate, but parking is permitted for up to 3 hours when their badge is clearly displayed in the windscreen along with a time clock set to the time of arrival.
Times for these restrictions may vary but the white time plate will never apply when the yellow time plate does not. Please always check the times shown on the plates and if there are no times shown, the restrictions apply every day including weekends and bank holidays.
