Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
They shouldn't cause a danger to road users but even if they have that doesn't mean they cannot rely on the evidence they gather while they are there.
There is an offence dangerous parking which may or may not be made out. Blocking a filter lane alone would not be sufficient. However, even if a vehicle is parked dangerously they can still rely on the findings of the laser gun I'm afraid.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
