A “Stop” is the immobilisation of the vehicle for less than two minutes, without the driver leaving the vehicle. The moment the driver gets out of the vehicle, even leaving another person inside, it is considered “parked”.
We must take into account the difference between stopping and parking because in some areas we will find that parking is prohibited but not stopping, as long as we do it following these instructions.
