I wouldn't take graham's advice as gospel, although I am certain that it was meant with the best intentions.
The parking regulations are notoriously hazy and I have seen cars being ticketed many times when a reasonable person would assume that it was o.k. to park.
Check to see if there are any wardens around and ask them, but the fact that wardens are on the streets would mean that tickets are probably being issued.
Good luck dilanroj.
