What is the law on sleeping overnight across the seats in a 3.5t van?

Asked on by

Spending the night in your van is something of a legal minefield. You can't spend the night in your van if you've been drinking alcohol, as the police could charge you with being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle. Some councils, for example, also have bylaws that prevent you from spending the night on a residential street or car park. And many motorway services will charge significant fees if you plan to stay longer than two or three hours.
