What do the different parking signs mean?
|Red ‘No Stopping’ signs with white text mean vehicles cannot stop, even momentarily, for any purpose.|
|White signs with red panels mean certain categories of vehicles may stop subject to certain conditions to perform specific tasks. For example, only registered buses may stop in a ‘Bus Zone’ and only registered taxis may stop in a ‘Taxi Zone’. If time restrictions apply, these will be shown on the sign.|
|White ‘No Parking’ signs with red and black text allow a vehicle to stop to set down or pick up passengers or goods. The driver must remain within 3 metres of the vehicle and cannot stop longer than 2 minutes. Times when this restriction applies may be shown on the sign.|
| White signs with green text means parking is permitted subject to certain conditions. For example a ‘2P’ sign allows up to two hours parking during the times shown.
Please note, the size and layout of parking signs is fixed by a national standard and cannot be varied by Council.
