Parking Warning, Motorists may face fines on Bank Holidays, says Car Leasing Site

…By Henry George for TDPel Media. As the bank holiday approaches, many people may be planning a road trip or a day out to make the most of the extra day off work.

However, car leasing comparison site, Moneyshake, has issued a warning regarding parking during this time, as it could result in a fine.

Parking restrictions still apply on bank holidays

While some may assume that restrictions on parking do not apply on a bank holiday, this is not always the case.

If signs state that parking restrictions apply from Monday to Saturday, for instance, they will still be in place on a bank holiday, unless signs specifically exclude this.

This rule applies to both single and double yellow lines.

Motorists who are caught violating these restrictions can face a Penalty Charge Notice, which can cost them anywhere between £50 and £80.

Check local council website

Eben Lovatt, CEO of the car leasing comparison site Moneyshake, advised motorists to check their local council’s website before going anywhere on a bank holiday, as the rules can vary from place to place.

It is safer to treat a bank holiday as a normal day, unless signs specifically indicate that the rules are different.

Analysis and commentary

This warning by Moneyshake is a reminder for motorists to be cautious when parking their cars on bank holidays.

While many may assume that parking restrictions do not apply on these days, it is essential to check the signs carefully to avoid any fines.

As Lovatt advised, it is better to treat a bank holiday as a normal day unless signs explicitly state otherwise.
