Does the county council have a different Highway Code?

We’re puzzled by these markings on the kerb outside Wessex House in Camberley’s Park Street.

P1130165b

P1130167b

Our copy of the Highway Code explains what a single and a double yellow line marking on the kerb means.  It makes no mention of a triple line.

(We don’t know whether to laugh or cry about this.  On the one hand, if we’re right that triple lines have no place in our highway regulations, it’s just a silly nonsense.  On the other hand, WE pay the county council, and we’re entitled to expect a high standard of performance.  Which – if our suspicions are correct – we’ve not received in this case.)

  1. The lines used to mean the following:-
    3 lines = means no loading during the working day +additional times (normally 24hrs though)
    2 lines = means no loading for the working day (See plate for what they class working day)
    1 line = means no loading for less than the working day (see plate for time limit)

    The parking authorities appear to be using an out of date Highway Code!!!

  2. Of course there may be a Paddy’s explanation. One line, no parking at all. Two lines, no parking at all, at all. So three must be no parking till the cock crows thrice.
