School zone parking

Hornsby Shire Council has teamed up with the NSW Police Force for a joint campaign to make school zones safer for our children.

School zone

School zone parking rules

No Parking

  • Drivers may stop in this zone to drop off or pick up passengers or goods for a maximum of two minutes.
  • The driver MUST remain in or within three metres of the vehicle at all times.
  • The vehicle must not be left unattended.
  • If times of operation are shown on the sign, the restriction only applies during the times shown.
  • No Parking zones can also be used to drop off and pick up children.

No Stopping

  • Stopping is not permitted at any time.
  • If times of operation are shown on the sign, the restriction only applies during the times shown.

Bus Zones

  • Drivers are not permitted to stop within a bus zone at any time.
  • If times of operation are shown on the sign, the restriction only applies during the times shown.

Double Parking

  • Drivers are not permitted to stop or park between the centre of the road and another vehicle that is parked at the side of the road.
  • Double parking decreases visibility for motorists and pedestrians, and significantly reduces road safety around schools.

PENALTIES EXCEED $183 PLUS 2 DEMERIT POINTS
