He's much more interested in taking photos of lorries unloading on double yellow lines.

"Waiting restrictions indicated by yellow lines apply to the carriageway, pavement and verge. You may stop to load or unload (unless there are also loading restrictions as described below) or while passengers board or alight. Double yellow lines mean no waiting at any time, unless there are signs that specifically indicate seasonal restrictions." (my emphasis)

In other words, unloading on a double-yellow line may be acceptable - it depends on the signage in the immediate environment. "Loading and unloading" is not, as I understand it, the same as "waiting" or "parking".

He is very well versed with the legalities, and is particularly keen to stop lorries causing a hazard to cyclists on many of our narrow, busy streets. I am surprised that he hasn't been thumped over it, as there's nothing he enjoys more than a good argument with a badly parked lorry driver.
