    Hi all,

    Does this sign mean you cannot park between 10AM to 11AM or is it from 10PM to 11AM?

    Bit basic I know but it doesn't make sense to me.

    Doesn't mention pm so that doesn't feature. 10 to 11 am.

    That would be really odd though, no parking between 10am and 11am makes little sense?

    Someone's made a mistake.
    Are there any similar signs in the vicinity and what do they say?
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Makes perfect sense. It's very like where I used to live.

    There was a tube station just down the road, so we used to get people driving in at 7-8am, parking up, walking to the station, then coming back at 7pm.

    Resident-only parking between 10-11am meant that stopped instantly. Not much restriction on anybody else, though.

    Hi guys,

    So would I be breaching the rules if I parked there after 11am? And would I be breaching it if I parked before 10am and was out before 10am? i.e. I park at 9am and leave by around 9.45am, would I breach it?

    The resident permits are only required between 10am and 11am. You can park at 11.01am, and leave at 9.59am the next day, and you will be just fine and dandy.

    Hi all,

    Does this sign mean you cannot park between 10AM to 11AM or is it from 10PM to 11AM?

    It's designed to make sure the commuters park in the railway carpark, rather than upset the locals.

    No mistake, it's very simple and very effective at stopping people parking all day whilst they are at work. I've known several places like this near stations.

    no it makes enormous sense, as with very many places across the UK, it stops "commuters" from parking there "all" day since they would have to return and move their car at a "very" awkward time of day for someone already at work

    As long as your car is gone by 10am or you arrive after 11am, you can park there. (unless there are other signs)


    It's very common in areas where commuters have been parking for free. Usually the parking warden does one walk past each day, between 10am and 11am. If you look at the streets nearby you might find some of them have no parking 9am - 10am or 11am - noon. So you can usually find somewhere to park if you are just visiting.
    Changing the world, one sarcastic comment at a time.

    Very common near railway stations etc. It's so the commuters can't park there all day from say 7.00am to early evening.
    At the same time it has limited effect on residents and people that legitimately need to be there such as tradesmen.

    It also means the traffic wardens only have to check that patch for one hour and then move on somewhere else where the restriction might be 11 - 12 am.

    You have them across suburbs in London. often one hour segments say 1 - 2pm. it's to stop people parking their cars in local streets and getting the tube into central London...

    That'll teach me to read the whole thread lol

    I had an encounter with a sign like this recently. They are, at first glance,confusing, although they are fully explained in the Highway Code. I had left my car by one of these signs, as I thought I would be ok. I returned to see two parking wardens just beginning to go through the process of ticketing my car. In the event, they did not proceed, as my return had thwarted their dastardly plot. But I did say to them that I had parked there because as I understood the signs, I was parking legally. The two wardens then looked at the sign, and got into an involved discussion about the ambivalence of such signs. I made my getaway before they changed their minds.

    Ambivalence?

    I don’t see the confusion myself, 10:00 - 11:00 is restricted, the other 23 hours are not.

    Anybody can park there, except between 10 and 11am.
    Between 10 and 11 it's permit holders only.
    The venue/location/setting might indicate a clue as to why they did that, who are these permit holders....

    It might be a shops' loading area 10-11, guessing from the black "L" also there.

    It does stop people parking 24 hours, so keeping the streets clear of people who park for weeks on end.

    I addition, the council can charge residents for permits - nice little earner!
