For instance, avoid parking near the following places;

  * Fire Service stations and Fire hydrants

  * Entrances of Markets, Schools and private residences.

  * Footpath, pavement or cycle path.

  * Left hand side of the road at night (except in a one-way street).

 * On flyover, in tunnels or in underpasses.

*  On expressways (except on the hard shoulder in an emergency).

*  Where you will make the road narrow.

* Opposite another parked vehicle if this would narrow the road to less than the width of two vehicles (double parking).
