What are the regulations for enforcing double yellow lines on private land? clearly they will not have a Traffic Order in place, but can they simply have yellow lines and then red signs up stating "no parking" to make it enforceable.

Private land? No such thing as DYl's. Purely graffitti.. Unless theyre covered under a bylaw. Such as railway stations etc.


As for your example, its an emphatic NO.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

They are not 'graffitti' if required by landowner.

Nor do they have any legal status beyond 'advisory', except in above situations.

PLO could remove offending vehicle removed as an obstruction/hazard.

Courts have been pragmatic on these features so if you get a ticket for parking on a standard DYL then they usually decide that it is a patter of prohibition and not a contractual matter but park on yellow lines outside a fire exit for example and they tend to side with the charge as the landowners intentions and H&S being paramount so paying some parking co £100 serves you right for being a prat.


Approach roads at airports and on residential estates are commonly in the formr category, hatched areas outside loading bays at supermarkets fall into the latter.


The law is the same though, they have no actual legal definition, just an indication of intent.
