It sounds as though you're not one of the people with his own drive.

Imagine that you were.

The time is 2:30am.

Your wife wakes you up telling you that her waters have just broken and the birth of your baby is imminent.

You jump out of bed and dress..... Your wife's case is already packed, so you both dash downstairs and get into the car. The hospital is five miles away, but there's not much traffic at this time of the morning.

Down to the end of your drive. Stop. Turn engine off..... There's a car parked across your drive, blocking you in. You don't recognise the car, because it belongs to a visitor to one of the neighbours.

They've all gone to a nightclub, by taxi. The keys to the car are in his pocket.

Now what do you do?

Have you ever delivered a baby?

 

The possible scenarios are endless.

 

But the top and bottom of it remains the same.

The owner of the house has a right of access in and out of his property.

Just because there is not a car on the drive doesn't alter that fact.

It might be in the garage, safe from car-thieves. Or the owner is out.... but he could be home at any time to suit himself.

 

The owner of the house has paid out his own money to have his drive surfaced. He has also paid the council to drop the kerb, again, out of his own pocket. Why should anyone deprive him of the enjoyment of his own drive and his own access?

Note that (1) I obviously don't condone parking across driveways where cars are on them,

So you DO condone parking across drives where there isn't a car on them? So if the owner goes to work, or parks his car in the garage, therefore there is no car on the drive, it's OK to park across the drive's entrance?

and (2) the dashed white lines representing the CPZ places continue through most of these driveways (no yellow lines are painted).

On most housing estates there are no lines, white or yellow) painted on the roads

I think parking across driveways in use is illegal for obstruction to highway, in any case.

 

There is nothing "silly" in the situation that I suggested. Emergencies and desperate situations can occur at any time of the day or night.
