Yes but lifeboats have a single yellow line all around them so they should be able to do a limited stay. {-)

I actually watched a traffic warden put a ticket on an ambulance while they were dealing with a someone in the back and had the blue lights on.

I confronted the TW and his reply was "A double yellow is a double yellow" and walked off

If it was a Mersey Class I would love to see them put a wheel clamp on a Talus tractor !!  {-) 

It wouldn't even notice when it moved off.
