Quick Answer: Is It Illegal To Park Across A Dropped KERB?

Is it illegal to park across a dropped KERB in the UK?

Dropped kerbs for access to off-street areas

Vehicles parked partially across the dropped kerb may be ticketed.

The vehicle does not have to be fully blocking the driveway.

Parking very close to the dropped kerb or directly opposite is not illegal, even if it restricts or impedes access.

Parking a vehicle fully or partially across a dropped kerb is classed as an obstruction and either the police or local council can enforce the contravention. As ridiculous as it may seem, you can be issued a PCN for parking across your own dropped kerb.

Can you park across a driveway?

The key legal facts about blocked driveways

If a vehicle is parked on your driveway without your permission, they would be trespassing. They can send an officer to try and determine the owner of the vehicle and ask them to move. A homeowner has no special legal right to park directly outside their property.

Can someone legally park in front of your house?

Actually, no. Since Public Roadways are just that, “public,” no one has the right to reserve spaces in front of his or her house. However, while it is not illegal to park in front of someone else’s house, it is certainly inconsiderate.
