Where the road taxpayer does have just as much right to park on these roads as a resident, please be polite to the locals, and here are a few simple tips to keep in mind so as to park legally and safely:

  • Park near the kerb
  • Do not block entrances or driveways
  • Check the signage before leaving your car
  • Make sure you feel safe to leave your vehicle, if not, move!
  • Make sure your vehicle is locked before leaving it
