Loading is often allowed where parking is not otherwise allowed – but it’s not a universal exemption from parking restrictions. Loading isn’t allowed on:
- zig-zag markings (both the yellow types found outside schools, and sometimes fire stations, ambulance bases or police stations, and the white ones marking the approach to pedestrian crossings);
- Red Routes (except in loading bays, when active);
- where it is banned by yellow kerb markings or zone entry plates.
- No stopping bays for taxi ranks, bus stops, etc
