Default London UK - New legislation in force to stop alleyway parking and covering your VRN

Bikers beware: City of London Corporation to start issuing penalty charge notices to motorcycles parked in alleyways
Tuesday 9 September 2008

Issued by Will Beeley of Motorcycleparking.com

From 22 September 2008 the City of London Corporation will start issuing penalty charge notices to vehicles parked on footpaths in alleyways; this follows the successful introduction of new legislation in July to close the loophole which previously allowed bikers to park in alleyways without fear of being ticketed. Section 8 of the London Local Authorities and Transport for London Act 2008 makes amendments to the Greater London Council (General Powers) Act 1974 giving new powers to all London Councils to issue fines to vehicles parked on footpaths (a footpath is a highway over which the public have a right of way on foot only <quite often these run at a right angle to an urban road, as opposed to a footway which normally runs parallel>). In addition, the new Act allows civil enforcement officers (previously parking attendants) to remove any obstruction covering a Vehicle Registration Number (VRN).

Ends

Whew. Thank God. For a while there I was afraid that England didn't have enough laws yet. Glad to see the tradition of more and more stupid laws being passed is not an America-only thing.
