  • The last poster should read the relevant legislation. Parking on a dropped curb is an offence.

  • Especially if the property owner of the dropped curb has not given consent.

  • Provide the specific legislation then.

    This is a driveway, not a dropped kerb.

  • Highway Code 243 is not applicable.

    As for the other one, this would make it a police matter. Not council

  • I think you’ll find it is. https://www.gov.uk/ guidance/ the-highway-code/ waiting-and-parking-238-to-252

    Rule 243 DO NOT stop or park:

    Near a school entrance anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services at or near a bus or tram stop or taxi rank on the approach to a level crossing/tramway crossing opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space near the brow of a hill or hump bridge opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked vehicle where you would force other traffic to enter a tram lane where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users and powered mobility vehicles in front of an entrance to a property on a bend where you would obstruct cyclists’ use of cycle facilities except when forced to do so by stationary traffic.

  • Here is more information from another council about this issue. Bristol City Council needs to deal with inconsiderate parking.

  • Rule 243 is guidance. Only when the Highway Code states “You MUST not” is when legislation is applicable.
