    Q617: Is it illegal to park on the yellow zig zag lines outside schools?

    Whilst it is not normally an offence in itself to park on the zigzag lines, drivers who do park there could commit an offence of causing an obstruction. In some areas the zigzag lines are accompanied by a traffic regulation order which does make it an offence to park there. There will be signs to indicate this at the location. In some areas the provisions in relation to zigzag lines will be enforced by the local council, whilst in others they will be enforced by the police.
