Autorijles - parking or standing by car

Parking or stationary with the car on public roads. What is stopped in traffic and what is now parking? When parking is done voluntarily and if involuntarily. What signs or traffic signs indicate parking or parking on the ban, and what to stop? This article focus on the distinction between stationary and parking and the situations in which prohibitions -when stop and parking- as described in the RVV 1990.

Standing still or parking

First you need to make a distinction between voluntary and involuntary pause. Standing still is voluntarily stop a vehicle from a conscious or deliberate choice. Involuntary stop at traffic -what participation in constantly changing traffic situations repeatedly found- does not dwell under in this regard. The pause is not a choice, but results from the traffic circumstances in which you find yourself at any given time.

Voluntary stop:

Standing still is voluntarily stopping the vehicle for / to:
  • leave it immediately and out of passengers
  • the immediate loading and unloading goods
When stopping and standing still be careful if you do this safely, does not impede the flow and not unnecessarily burdened the environment.

Parking

If you remember the above two points, it makes sense whatever parking, namely:
all other situations in which you put the vehicle voluntarily stopped and what is not covered by the two points at a standstill!

Fines for wrong parking and / or stop

Fines due to bad parking or standing still vary from ?? 90 to ?? 370. Look at the list of the various fines

Standing and Parking - RVV 1990 - Articles 23 and 24

The articles seem a rather dry list, but try to get the situation -as described in the products- from your own environment to mind. The intent of the regulations than visual and easier to understand and apply. Ask yourself also what the logic of the regulations and how it arises from the creation of security, visibility, improved flow or reduced burden on the environment and so on.
RVV 1990 - Article 23: prohibition to stand still:
The driver may not wait his vehicle:
  • at an intersection or crossing
  • a bicycle lane or on the carriageway along a bicycle lane
  • at a crosswalk or within a distance of five meters of it
  • in a tunnel
  • at a bus stop sign at the height of the checkered flag, or is not installed where that mark, at a distance of less than 12 meters from the board
  • on the roadway along a bus lane
  • along a yellow line
It stopped at a bus does not allow for the immediate and out of passengers.
RVV 1990 - article 24: no parking:
Drivers may not park their vehicles:
  • at a crossroads, at a distance of less than five meters of it
  • for an entrance or an exit
  • outside urban areas on the roadway of a major
  • on a bed and unrivaled: A insofar as the vehicle does not belong to the board or the parking notice specified category of vehicle or group of vehicles. B is indicated in a manner other than on the board or on the underplate. C on days or hours when parking is shown it to be prohibited.
  • along a continuous yellow line
  • an opportunity for the immediate loading and unloading goods
  • on parking for permit holders, indicated by the sign E9 Annex 1 when his vehicle was granted a permit to park in that place
  • if under the E4 to E8, E12 and E13 of appendix 1 are listed on a days or hours, the funds provided under the sign or parking notice or prohibited ill during the specified days and hours
  • the driver should the vehicle not double parking
  • if a parking indicated by one of the E4 to E13 in Annex 1, has designated parking bays may be parked only in those subjects.

My wife works in a market with little parking. They always do the shopping at the market, and later that day I get that moment. Now I did recently. I stopped the car next to a parking space, left open my door and walked into the stall to take over all the stuff from her. They took it out of the truck and handed it to me then I go right back to my car. I was within two minutes back and have thus taken over only stuff from my wife. At the time I returned to my car have two bikes stadstoezichten soon gone. They proved to have just given me a speeding ticket. In my view, I do not have parked there, I did not go shopping, I picked up stuff alone, who are directly given to me. Yet I have a ticket for parking in the car where it should not. At the place where I was allowed to load and unload. Is this ticket go?

We live in an area with several bends. In these curves, there is in each case a white dashed line. How far after the white dotted line, so in the straights, can I park my car?

I am ticketed for rest on a sidewalk. My husband and children were in the car, turning up a cake from the store, because of lack of parking spaces, I put the car not disturb the other passers-by on the sidewalk. Is this fine right?

I stand with two wheels in an area indicated by the traffic sign no parking zone E01-ZB. Is it right that I get this a penalty?

Right now, I dwell in a corner house with a parking space right in front of my door. There are no increases or curbs, the street is narrow and the pavement is level with the street. The parking lot is marked with white stones and is situated at 120 cm from my front door. That in itself is pretty tight and when motorists parking outside the lines the distance from my door is even smaller. The record at this time is 40 cm! Enforcement shrugs and people I contact to find out to me to say the least a whiner. As I said, I dwell in a corner house, the parking is 120 cm from the corner. A council official told me that the five meter rule is not valid. It was one-way traffic so from my angle is not anticipated traffic, the parking is legal according to the official. Cyclists and moped riders to come from both directions, this sometimes leads to conflict, but so far no injuries or anything like that. My question now. Can the municipality locate a parking space in this place?

Dear Sir / Madam, I got a ticket for the agent according to the "parking in a handicapped spot." During my departure from a car park with barriers, I decided not to stop at just one of the four disabled parking spaces free to grab my charge exit ticket. So the cars could drive behind me. In this span of less than a minute, I want to drive on to leave the grounds. However, this did not work because I was immediately stopped by an officer who directly give me a ticket. Can I fight this? I hear from u.MVG

I got a ticket for parking on the opportunity for immediate loading and unloading of goods. I was parked at the corner of the street where I live. That angle is surrounded with large metal spheres, resulting in a protected place. I've lived here since 1996 and everyone in the street parked in such a place regularly in the street car. We have previously never had a penalty, so until recently, with the description of the loading and unloading it at. I can understand that the rule of 5m of an intersection would apply. But do fit the description on the ticket is not one of them and I think it's also very bizarre that after almost 20 years here suddenly be fines for uitgedeeld.Kan I appeal against this ticket?

I got a ticket because I had parked my car within five meters of a crosswalk. However, the car was BEYOND the crosswalk on a dual carriageway which was one-way traffic from application and also could not come cyclists from the opposite direction. I therefore prohibited for any road user view.

Apply for an exit same parking rules as a crossroads, this is because our neighbors constantly park their cars behind our driveway on the other side of the road so we can not make the turn to pull away. Our street is about 4 meters wide. Want to know this, because the situation is currently quite escalates and there is no clarity about the rules.

There was a car parked on the left side of the road at a crossroads to ask for directions. He had no warning lights on. I passed him on the right and when he drove away with against me bumper. He had no flashlight when he drove away. The man says that he is not to blame because I overtook him right. Is that right?

I'm waiting to turn down after left in a very, very, very small commotion in the weg.Er is someone behind me who says her car I've given a slap on the front bumper that my car was going backwards. I did not even notice that the car ran back. She stood very close behind my perhaps 5 to 10 cm. Is it allowed?

31-02-2018

At what point is the 5meter Regeln i.v.m. the park measured at a crossroads? Because I have my car at a T junction on the "horizontal" head parked and now suddenly been fined. Because I want to object to it going to make, I would like to know if this uberhaupt makes sense. Incidentally, I exactly two weeks before I had the fine had a conversation with two police officers in the street and told me that I could just park there because there is nowhere indicated in my street that runs along the sidewalk parking is prohibited, is this correct?

31-02-2018

I wonder if there are more extensive rules for the prohibition of parking for an exit. For me there every day a car for the exit at maximum 3.50 m. My own car is longer and sometimes we have a lot of trouble getting the car to drive to the parking space on site. It is a 30 km zone in a residential neighborhood in a street with plenty of parking spaces where a parked car belonging to a construction company, but is used by the occupant. The resident has continued in his yard are a camper and a third car in a parking along the roadway. The resident incidentally has its own exit sufficient room to place his company vehicle.

I had to deposit a substantial amount of money in the bank. Therefore set I stopped my car with the doors open and lights on a car park for the disabled next to the entrance of the bank. I'm not even 3 minutes away to deposit the amount, come back to the car to find a parking ticket of up ?? 180 on my bonnet. The parking attendant apparently had no time should have been obvious that between my wipers obligations.The the parking attendant that I just had to get away and I was not parked but only momentarily stopped because this was really just three minutes. Does it make sense to appeal against this fine. This has got to steal real money from citizens.

My question is to hoevere parking is not permitted for the exit, turn to us they drive right by the entrance / exit so there is no hell once free of what a normal person would do, and can thus hard to get out, and we have not a broad street, what would be here for the solution, already bijne had once war here which uitrit.wou like him for years got him now, and sometimes can not normally am out there so sick of, so think but sometimes take the law into their own hands but yes then you're wrong it myself but how should it then I wonder.

Parking for your exit? You can not park in front of an entrance or exit. But what if it's your own exit, and Home is a tree so that no two cars can be parked in a row? We have built a moooie front yard and find it a shame to park a car there. The neighbor to park their car or at its entrance but sometimes has trouble uitparkeren because parked across the street cars are and they can not make the turn. If my car would not be the neighbor may be easier when parking. I need my car than just park somewhere else. My car is as tight as possible to the tree and is well within my driveway. The neighbor says she possibly. wants to go to the police because I legally not allowed as parkeren.Wat is correct?

Dear Mark / Tineke, The meterage eg near a crossroads or VOP is not stated. I think this is partly because of intersections and such guidelines for the construction and these funds are fairly uniform, where the concept of entrance or exit much broader is.Neemt not mean that before an exit on the other side also can relate to the vision to promote safety and doorstromong. Article 241.De driver should not park their vehicles: a. at an intersection at a distance of less than five meters thereof; b. for an entrance or exit, c. outside urban areas on the roadway of a priority; d. a parking: 1a. provided that his vehicle does not belong to the on-board or on the parking notice specified category of vehicle or group of vehicles; 2a. in a different way or for a purpose other than on the board or is shown on the plate; 3a. on days or hours when parking is shown it to be prohibited; e. along a continuous yellow line f. an opportunity for the immediate loading and unloading of goods g. on parking for permit holders, indicated by the sign E9 of Annex I, when his vehicle no permit to park in that location is verleend.Spreek neighbors out or request mediation by the local police officer as the situation raises problems, or peril, or causes nuisance.

Dear Carla, If I understand the following story: A T-junction is also a crossroads for which you within a distance of 5 meters should not parkeren.Waar the measuring point of the five mtr.officieel described I do not know. There is also discussion over.zie: from: pull in the opposite corners in a straight line from the middle of the turn, you would make a square from there to the upper straight line from the tThese square determines assessment of the five meter.In all cases, it also applies that your parked vehicle may pose no danger and that the drawn vehicle visibility not unduly constrained.

Dear J, the data whether or not the park can be seen all lastig.Bij allowing direct embarkation or disembarkation of passengers or the immediate delivery of a package we do not talk about parking. When depositing money you may assume that this longer time than bedoeld.Probleem remains that lasts a parking attendant 1. Do not know how long already parked and 2. how long it will take before you will have the parking again leave.The parking in a handicapped spot is -to reasons- reserved only for those who can place a valid disabled parking european visible behind the window.

Good evening, unfortunately you can not park your own exit, although this seems very illogical. If there is enough space, this will certainly be a priority of the police and will -to my opinion- are rarely acted against. Think of it more as a big stick in case of conflicts.
