    Q893: What are the rules in relation to single and double yellow lines?

    Waiting restrictions indicated by yellow lines apply to the carriageway, the pavement and the verge. You can stop to load or unload (unless there are no loading restrictions) or while passengers board or alight.

    Double yellow lines mean no waiting at any time, unless there are signs that specifically indicate seasonal restrictions. The times at which the restrictions apply for single yellow lines are shown on nearby plates or on entry signs to controlled parking zones. If no days are shown on the signs, the restrictions are in force every day including Sundays and Bank Holidays.
