Are you a new driver or by any chance visiting the city for the first time? If so, it would be appropriate to be well conversant with our ParkingZone regulations so as to avoid having your car clamped or getting in trouble with parking lot attendants or authorities. We have numerous ParkingZones across the city that operate on more or less the same ParkingZone restrictions. Here are some few tips on how you can have a stress-free parking within the city.
- Hours of operation.
Our parking lot controls operate at specific times every day of the week, including the weekend. When you park your car outside the stipulated hours of operation, you are not required to pay any parking fee. Remember to always check the displayed signs and not make assumptions in regards to the parking hours.
- Single yellow lines.
Within a ParkingZone, a single yellow line often does not have sign plates. It does mean that all single yellow lines that have no time plates operate at our regular parking times. If a single yellow line has a time plate, it means that it operates at different times from the regular stipulated time frames, and often for longer hours. Therefore check the sign plate before you park.
- Double yellow lines.
Double yellow lines prohibit parking at all times. Some of the regulations that govern the double yellow line include:
- All restrictions on double yellow lines are operation throughout; whether at night or day, seven days of the week, with bank holidays being included.
- The lines are strictly enforceable at all times irrespective whether a time plate is there or not.
- Double yellow lines are often sited basically for safety reasons, especially in areas where parking could cause serious traffic obstructions.
- Parking suspension.
Under certain circumstances, a parking space can be suspended. The suspensions are often short term, especially for removal purposes. If for any reasons you may require a parking suspension in a ParkingZone you should contact one of our parking attendants. This should be done in advance, preferably three days to the time you would need to park.
All permits that are issued are chargeable. The price may vary depending on which type of permit you have asked for. There are three types of permits that you can apply for within our parking bays. The permits include:
- Business permit.
- Resident permit.
- Resident visitor permit.
Always have your permit displayed to avoid incurring a penalty charge. You should also know that permits are not transferable. In case you lose a permit, report to the relevant body immediately for another permit to be arranged for you.
All our parking zones have entry and exit signs so as to inform you when you are entering or leaving. This would make your parking more convenient.
