Hi gang.

               If you live on a bus route is it illegal to reverse your car off of your drive onto the road ?.

                                                                                                                                                   Thanks all.

Yes. It doesn't even have to be a bus route. Driving out onto the road is okay though.

Although it is not illegal, it is not advised.

Highway Code:-

6. Reversing (200 to 203)

200
Choose an appropriate place to manoeuvre. If you need to turn your vehicle around, wait until you find a safe place. Try not to reverse or turn round in a busy road; find a quiet side road or drive round a block of side streets.

201

Do not reverse from a side road into a main road. When using a driveway, reverse in and drive out if you can.

Its OK suggesting people revers into their drive, but some cant even drive going in a forward direction so you've got no chance. We have a reverse parking only rule at work and its surprising how difficult it is for some folk, they aint got a scooby.

It would be interesting to bring that in where I work.

 

Some people regularly struggle with getting inside the white lines of the box.  :w00t:

Oddly enough, at the local hospital, they have a sign advising you not to reverse into their parking slots. 

Absolutely no idea why

I've seen this in places where you would be reversing up to, or under, opening windows.

Strangely, not here. The parking slots back on to kerbs and grass, so go figure.

Hello, local pizza delivery drivers do it all the time here, right on a pedestrian crossing, even park on there and the footpath, anyone who walks past this shop at night risk their lives , police don't have time to stop this until someone gets hurt or killed, to be honest I find no one cares about parking much in town, it's a free for all,

In the ‘70’s I worked with an army Colonel who enjoyed a pint or two. His advice was, on arrival, to always reverse in to the parking space. In this way you were facing the way you wanted to go which, after a pint or two, was important. His thinking was that in reversing out after a beer or two there was a greater risk of nudging another vehicle with the obvious risks of confrontation etc.

Since then, I have always reversed in to parking spaces as it seems the most sensible way to park. (I hasten to add that I do not drink and drive)
