The rules usually apply not just to the parking space in which you are parked, but that particular row of uninterrupted bays. It is not usually an offence however to park for the maximum time allowed in a bay and then re-park your car on the other side of the road or in a separate row of bays. The signs must also be clear and at regular intervals. please see below.
