Good morning

 

The point is not embodied in statute and is referred to only in the Highway Code at:-

http://www.highwaycode.gov.uk/22.htm#217

The courts can consider breaches of the Highway Code rules when deciding whether a motorist has committed an offence and it is possible that a charge of obstruction could succeed on that basis.

Should an accident occur where vision is imapired at a junction due to a parked car in a marked parking space (council) i.e. parked legally, is it possible that some liabilty could be placed on those that place the marked space too near to the junction. In this case the distance being less than 4 feet.

Good morning

 

I'm afraid that to allow an obstruction would not cause or contribute to an accident and such a claim would fail.
