I stumbled upon a posting regarding wheel clamping a few days ago and one of the replies was that it was illegal to clamp a driving instructors car.Is thta correct? I can't remember where it was on here but vividly remember reading the reply.Can anyone give me a link if they know where it is or can anyone confirm wether it is illegal or not? Many thanks in advance

Whats been happening is that instructors have been clamped whilst doing show me/tell me at the side of the road, there are signs up on lampposts but they are not exactly clear. I was led to believe from people on here that clamping is a remedy for trespass, not sure what problem is being caused whilst parked at the side of a very large road though.

Any chance of getting a picture or paraphrasing what these signs say?

these private clamping firms have a reputation for being cowboys anyway.

 

For the sake of argument is there nowhere off-road you can do them? I know the estate roads do take a lot of goods vehicle traffic so parking on them perhaps isn't a good idea anyway.

 

The signs are, from the last time I was down there anyway - very very obscure, they are several metres up the lamp posts facing into the road so you can't see them from the car and even if you could, you can't read them, to the extent there's basically no notices, as well as which there are no DYLs on the road or anything, though I don't think on private land they're needed anyway, it is usually a good idea to be a bit more obvious where you don't want people to park. It is almost like you have to 1. know that it is private land (since it isn't obvious) 2. know you can't park there.

The above post constitutes my personal opinion on the facts in the post compared with my personal knowledge of the applicable legislation. I make no guarantees of its legal accuracy. If you are in doubt seek advice of a legal professional specialising in the area concerned.

Forest Chav is correct, and it looks like any other road.

Its a big wide road which ultimatly leads nowhere and had industrial units along it, petrol distribution depots etc, you couldnt stop anywhere else other than on the road. You could park a lorry on the road and not be obstructing anything as the road is wide enough for 3 lorries abreast.

Clampers have crept up behind cars parked on the road and clamped them with people sat in their car eating a sandwich!

To all intents and purposes it looks like a normal road with street lights, there are yellow lines in places but not all along.

If this road has streetlights, it may be that the road is under the control of the council. You need to find out if the council has adopted this road. A simple phone call to them will let you know one way or the other (or watch to see if they grit the road in the forthcoming bad weather). If the road is adopted (which I expect it will be) then the clampers are working illegaly.

All the roads are called 'Private Road' followed by number, like private road 1, private road 2 etc, which implies they are indeed private, but I was not sure about the street lights as Im not an expert but it did cross my mind. I think your advice with regards calling the council is something i will do.

 

They couldnt clamp me anyway, I have a blue badge!

Actually I think they're adopted where the buses run on them at least.
