Single yellow line exceptions
You cannot park on a single yellow line on a public or bank holiday:
- if a single yellow line is accompanied by a single yellow kerb mark on the pavement, and a parking sign that advises that a loading ban is in place at that location from Monday to Sunday
- if there is a separate yellow sign for the yellow line which indicates that parking is restricted from Monday to Sunday.
