It all comes down to definitions really. Illegal means 'against the rules'. The Highway code is amongst other things a 'rule book' so therefore, yes they are parked illegally.

However, some rules in the highway code and considered as a criminal offence, others are not. I am almost certain that this does not constitute a criminal offence, so the Police are unlikely to get involved.

What about your local council though? If a council can fine a resident for not putting their refuse out 'correctly', maybe they have some power in this case. Maybe worth a quick call to your local council offices.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
