French court rules ‘no parking’ for owners

One of the highest courts in France, the Court of Cassation, has ruled that it is forbidden to park in front of your own garage.

A motorist whose vehicle was parked in front of the entrance to his garage had been reported to police for illegal parking. At first, the police agreed that there had been no offence committed. However, the hearing by the higher court for the “inconvenient parking” of a vehicle in front of the building concluded that an offence had taken place.

The latest interpretation of the law is likely to cause considerable inconvenience to motorists across France who’ve been using the space in front of their entrances as a suitable place to park their own cars on busy streets.
