As a DFL (that's down from Liverpool) I'm used to generally being able to park on a single yellow line on a bank holiday. Just received a parking ticket though, so presumably that's not so in Lewes?

You need to look at the signage as to what the restrictions are.
Most but not all are eight to five or six. Bank holidays included unless stated.
Bang to rights I think

Just went into town and the single yellows have loads of cars - so do the doubles - the whole place is unregulated. It either stays like that or goes a la Lewes. LOL. To be fair to the motorists, they pretty much self regulate and I've not seen any blocking of the roads . No entitled people and DFL's here that's why. .Kind regards, Laughing from Hailsham.

Lots of logical, common sense people think like you Pete. So, strapped county councils see an opportunity, and take it!

In Lewes, metered parking is free on bank holidays (check the sign by the parking meter). However, single yellow lines work differently: they generally prohibit parking every day of the week including Sunday from 0800 or 0900 to 1700 or 1800. That's a seven-day-a-week rule without exceptions for bank holidays. Indeed, I saw parking wardens enforcing that rule today, Bank Holiday Monday.

I would have given anything to have been given a ticket just to have the interaction with the traffic warden. I get very lonely especially around the bank holiday season and I need a man. Preferably in uniform.

If you'd like to pay my fine, SWOABH, there are lots of nice men, some in uniform, hanging around at the Lewes parking office.

Castle gate is wrong. At least where I used to live parking on single yellow lines was allowed on Sunday but not Saturday. The same must apply to holidays too.

You'd like to think so wouldn't you.
You'd also like to think that the double yellow that were put in various places around residential estates to allow the buses to turn the corners would also not apply on a bank holiday (as the buses don't run), but they do...
It's just another excuse to generate cash, I've seen them arriving on a Bank Holiday, a people carrier turns up about 7 wardens bundle out and head off in various directions, every offender on an estate has a ticket within about 30 minutes (and then off to the next estate).

Have you tried driving on Southover High St at the weekends? Cars parked all over the single yellow lines so that quite often the whole area gets completely gridlocked.
I'm frankly more than happy for them to control parking which blocks the roads in town.
