Could anyone please tell me where I can obtain a local Traders Parking Permit for the town and how much does one cost. Need this to avoid getting a ticket when parking in the pay and display car parks, in the loading bays and when required on the double yellow lines. Thanks
A parking permit should be a "parking permit" not a loading bay permit and double yellow lines are there because it's dangerous to park.
Why not park out of town and leave the parking spaces for customers
Why would you need a parking permit if you are legitimately using a loading bay?
And a parking permit for parking on double yellow lines??? Guess you need to blag a blue badge!
Fredbassett, There is no such permit in Dawlish.
But the following should give an understanding of what is and is not allowed, this from the TSRGD:
Loading is allowed on double-yellow lines unless there are also yellow marks on the kerb or at the edge of the carriageway.
Double yellow lines along the edge of the carriageway indicate that parking restrictions apply to the road (which includes the carriageway, pavement and verge). A driver may stop for passengers to board or alight and to load or unload . The regulation applies to all vehicles other than those with disabled parking permits . The restriction applies from the centre of the carriageway to the back of the footway.
I think our dear friend FredBassett is taking the proverbial and having a dig!!
Brazilnut. You could be right.
Loading is only allowed if kerb markings are present (not as you stated)
You are not allowed to park, stop, load, unload light or alight on double yellow lines.
Blue badge holders are allowed to park on double yellow as long as they can prove it causes no obstruction.
1908 law states you can not stop on a highway contravention is classified as obstruction.
Conclusion, Fredbassett stop being such a lazy couch potato and park away from town allow visitors and customers to park and maybe the business people of Dawlish will earn a reasonable income.
Andysport you are wrong. No parking/ loading at anytime for any reason is when the kerbs are marked with the following:
Double Yellow Kerb Markings
Try reading this again from the TSRGD (traffic/signs/regulaton/guidance/directions, (Department of Transport)
Double yellow lines along the edge of the carriageway indicate that parking restrictions apply to the road (which includes the carriageway, pavement and verge). A driver may stop for passengers to board or alight and to load or unload .
Don't get me started on blue badge holders dumping their cars on double yellow lines. Especially the selfish idiots who cause chaos outside Harrisons just before the loading bay. Every one of them should be ticketed time and time again.
Nelson, Nobody is expecting you to get involved, I was correcting Andysports comments.
Er, and I was commenting on his comments!!! As one does. On a forum. On the internet. Or do I need your permission first?!
Anyway, LOL, I take it you've stopped thinking that Andysport and I are one and the same??!
You are correct I AM WRONG SORRY
Nelson/User if blue badge holders are causing an obstruction phone the police maybe if they get ticketed they'll stop doing it.
What a good idea Nelson has to request permission to speak. LOL
Nelson, Yes I have changed my mind you are still, Nelson/Andymac and Nelson is still the name of my GSH,
Andysport there is so much in the traffic regulations it is easy to get confused
LOL you're so funny. I'm also other usernames according to your paranoid mind - you mustn't leave them out of your delusions LOL. Have a nice day jambuster.
At least now you are being truthful as I have been informed by the webmaster that you have registered other names, obviously I do not know what they are. are you still using my GSH name for your email address nelsonthealsation@...........
Correct Jambuster used to be my other sign in name until for some reason there was a problem and the webmaster gave me the name User4549
Bless his cotton socks. Keep digging that hole LOL.
Shouldn't it be '...alsatian'? Just a thought of how to get around the problem.
I just checked Nelson/AndyMac email and he spelt it nelsonthealsation@.......... if I continue to get the pathetic remarks from him I will put the full email address and name and he can do the same to me, the webmaster can then remove it at his leisure.
You what???!!! You started the "pathetic remarks" when you had a pop at me further up this thread for no reason at all. I've been trying to ignore you since you threatened me previously, however if you can't accept that I'm allowed to pass comment, without you throwing a hissy fit, then you need to take a look at yourself.
The comments between andysport and myself re parking permits until stuck your nose in with the following
"Don't get me started on blue badge holders dumping their cars on double yellow lines" who asked you to get started? you obviously have a problem with the law that allows blue badge holders to park for 3 hours on yellow lines.
You are not trying hard enough to ignore me, please try harder.
How on earth is me commenting on Andysports' post (NOT your post) on an internet forum "sticking your nose in"??!! That's what forums are for - discussion and commentary!!!
I will leave it at that, as it clearly isn't sinking in with you, and will therefore return to ignoring you on here. Have a nice weekend.
Ha ha ha ha ha Lol
Methinks FredBassett is the only one really Ha ha ha ha Lol'ing
I was thinking just the same. :-(
To get the post back on track a quick shuffle around Teignmouth last afternoon found one large purple van and three other trade signwritten vans one outside Riviera bar and the others in northumberland place carpark which is pay & display. All have a little green square pass with Teignbridge logo on it.
Think it could be something to do with charity or disability
