I SHOULD really like to know what the legal situation is with regard to cars parked on the roadside. At one time I seem to remember that one had the right to pass over the highway, but not to occupy it.
At a later date (when parking on the roadside seemed to have become acceptable), one was not allowed to park there in darkness or overnight without displaying a warning light which was white at the front and red at the rear. (Older motorists will no doubt remember buying such lights which were clipped on the top of the driver’s door window, and plugged into the cigar lighter).
The situation has now developed where, what with Kirklees’ policy of road narrowing and cars parked on both sides, it becomes very hazardous to venture along the road – especially if some large
vehicle has already started running the gauntlet from the other end.
Perhaps some lawyer would like to explain what the law now is?
