I live in a busy street,which has a bus running through every hour,I need to know if it is illegal to park you`re car with one wheel on the kerb.when I say on the kerb,it is litterally front and back right on the kerb,no further.if any of you are traffic wardens or work for the local councils,I would be grateful for you`re knowledge on this matter.

Moved to misc, feedback is for HUKD issues.

I am sure you cant park 'you're' car on the kerb at all.
#3
only in areas clearly maked with white lines on the kerb and pavement.
#4
I live in a very narrow road that has a bus route and a few cars have bin hit if the bus turns to wide. I asked my council if i could park on the kerb and they said no. They have now had someone come out and they are going to make the road wider.

in my mums road cars park with wheels on the kerb as it's very narrow street and i've never seen them get a ticket for it, even though i've seen traffic wardens wondering down the street.

you're = you are

No it is Illegal to park or drive on the pavement unless to cross it to gain access to a property or where signs allow parking.
Highway Code says:-

244
You MUST NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement in London, and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it. Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.
[Law GL(GP)A sect 15]

I can't parallel park. I use a car park instead
#9
Pavement parking is actually only a specific offence in London. "Parking with one or more wheels on a footpath"
#10
You can get a ticket for "parking" on the pavement..sorry

It all depends on how often the wardens come along your street.
#11
Some boroughs allow it, some don't but mark out areas where you can in certain streets etc.

Go to your local council website.
#12
As i said, not illegal outside of London, although the police may be interested if causing an obstruction.

I was told by the police that one rule of thumb is 'you need to leave enough room on the pavement for a double buggy & enough room on the road for emergency vehicles to pass'.

You're right it's not illegal but it is a parking offence, they decriminalised it in 1991 possibly

I thought wardens can only issue tickets if parked illegally on a road not pavement? - I might be wrong but its something someone told me a while back. Police on the other hand can issue tickets anywhere

I was parked on a grass verge fully about 5m from a double yellow, wasn't causing an obstruction still a traffic warden got her book out. I asked aren't I allowed to park here, she said no. I drove off before she had a chance. That was 8yrs ago ;-)

A rule of thumb is a principle with broad application that is not intended to be strictly accurate or reliable for every situation. It is an easily learned and easily applied procedure for approximately calculating or recalling some value, or for making some determination.
