You must obey all parking signs.

Examples of parking signs

Any parking sign that has a red border around the outside means that you can’t stop there at any time, unless other times are shown. 

Here are some examples of parking signs and what they mean.

Parking for people with disabilities

Parking areas with these signs are set aside to give mobility parking permit holders easy access to places such as supermarkets, libraries and community centres. 

To park here you must display a mobility parking permit on your front window. Otherwise, you may be fined or have your vehicle towed away. 

For information on how to get a permit, and the special parking conditions that go with it, contact CCS Disability Action.
