When you must not stop when driving

The regulations relating to stopping article looks at when you must stop, now it is time to look at when you must not stop as a driver... There are times when you need to stop, but also many times where you must not stop, for instance certain places and at certain road markings.

Can you think of a number of places where you must not stop on the road? Before reading on try to come up with a list and see how many you can come up with, you will find it an interesting exercise to do so.

Generally it is a case that you can't stop or park in various scenarios, and these include the following:

- Infront of someone's driveway
- On double yellow lines
- By a road sign telling you not to stop
- Anywhere that parking would cause danger to other road users
- Anywhere that would make it hard for otheres to see
- Anywhere that would narrow the road significantly
- Anywhere that would hold up traffic
- Covering most entrance and exits that other vehicles require, for instance particularly anywhere an emergency vehicle might stop, enter or exit from
- Anywhere it is not permitted to stop, for instance at certain times on many residential roads etc
- Private premises that are not your own or are, for instance, for customers of a company only

Although a lot of it is common sense you will see drivers stop in all sorts of weird and wonderful or not so wonderful places, so always show consideration for other road users when parking and stopping and obey the rules of the road: and if you park in a restricted parking zone or somewhere that requires a ticket without one, then you can expect a hefty fine or worse - clamping!
