Free Parking in Marlborough

I rarely travel into Marlborough these days, the parking is such a pain. So I was pleased yesterday to spot a length of double yellow lines on the High Street that I can park on... (just up the little cut through by The Sun)


The Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions (DTLR) confirmed that with single or double yellow lines there must be a block painted at a 90-degree angle at the end of the lines.

A spokesman said: "If this end line isn't there then the lines have been laid out incorrectly by the local authority and you would have grounds to challenge the ticket in court."

If you worry about getting a ticket may I recommend -

Parking Appeals .co.uk ... helping motorists to successfully appeal their parking tickets ... and get refunds for the ones already paid


Also, I think the sign defining the hours of prohibition have to be sited within a pre-defined distance of the yellow lines.

A bit of light reading, download the Traffic Signs Manual. It is the bible that defines all the road signs and road markings. Chapter 5 is road markings
