There's a vehicle parked in a lamp post about a mile from here, just after the Sacriston RAB on the A691. I saw the folks in hi-vis cutting the remains of the post down, earlier today.

No prizes for guessing the marque.

From that article Ask the Police state : -

"In some areas the zigzag lines are accompanied by a traffic regulation order which does make it an offence to park there. There will be signs to indicate this at the location."

What ??

Surely parking on zig-zag lines is an offence. I've never seen any signs explaining whether they are legally enforceable or not.

You read the article far more thoroughly than I did! I agree though, the presence of zig-zags is in itself a prohibition of parking (and stopping to eg pick up passengers).

Not so much parked as pinned to the spot in Aberdeenshire.

The polis from that particular van were attending an incident where a man died after a tree fell on his vehicle.
