Thanks for that helpful and positive reply. The code is 624 "parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway" .

There shouldn't be any difficulty as "the contravention did not occur".
Gavin Smith wrote:However, you assessed it yourself, decided that it was dangerous to others, but went ahead and parked there on the basis that you thought you could get away with it.There are no signs prohibiting vehicular traffic and none forbidding parking. In fact, the Freda Street road sign positively suggests that vehicles can enter. .
Gavin Smith wrote:Actually, it's exactly the point I'm making. People would rather do things that they know are inconsiderate or dangerous, as long as there's no law against it, and then will go to great lengths arguing the toss. Shame.Whether or not I would choose to park there again, knowing what I know, is neither here nor there.
