S5W-19949: Kezia Dugdale (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 14 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what legislation there is to prevent caravans parking on public roads.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 27 November 2018

There is no specific legislation to prevent a motorist parking a caravan on a public road. However, if the caravan is causing an obstruction or is dangerously parked then the motorist would be in breach of Regulation 103 of the Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986 (SSI 1986/1078), and Police Scotland will be able to investigate and, where necessary arrange for its removal.
