The Transport (Scotland) Act, 2019, introduced a national ban on parking on pavements, double parking or parking on the road adjacent to a footpath where the path has been lowered (or the road raised) to provide a crossing-place for pedestrians or cyclists.

From Monday 15th July 2024, this ban will be enforced with Penalty Charge Notices imposing a fine of £100 (or £50 if paid within fourteen days).

There are exceptions provided for vehicles being used by various people (such as emergency services, some public services, business deliveries) and in emergency circumstances (such as collisions, breakdowns or life-saving emergencies). Please note that there are no exceptions for blue badge holders or taxis.

Certain streets may be considered for an exemption order (where they are particularly narrow or other exceptional circumstances exist) but the ban will prevail until such an order has been made.
