    Q384: When can I park on double yellow lines?

    Unless you have a disabled parking permit (see related question for full details of disabled parking scheme) you are not permitted to park on double yellow lines at any time, the restrictions apply 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. There are a very few exceptions to this and there will be signs to indicate times/dates where it may be permitted.

    You could face a fine if you park illegally or you could even have your car towed away.
