Another first for Westminster – the shortest double yellow lines in the UK!

From the ‘Belfast Telegraph’;

Double Yellow line

“There may be a move towards smaller cars, but you would have to have a Micra-scopic or a Mini-scule vehicle to park on what must be the shortest double yellow line in the UK.

Measuring just over nine inches long, the lines are in Caxton Street, Westminster, between a taxi rank and some parking bays.

Leith Penny, Westminster City Council’s strategic director for city management, said: “This was a mistake by a contractor. We are obviously not happy about it, because double yellow lines should play an important part in traffic management and road safety. But on this occasion we can see how absurd this looks and we will make sure it is corrected.”
