There are a range of State wide parking laws, regulations and rules that apply to all road users, with the aim to make our roads safe, ensure traffic and public transport flows smoothly, pedestrian safety is maintained and accessible parking is provided to all those that need it. Signage is provided in many situations, but in others, it is the responsibility of drivers to know the parking and road rules that apply. For some of the common rules please refer to our Parking Laws Brochure.
Parking near schools
Due to the chaotic nature of traffic around schools at peak times, streets can be an extremely dangerous place for children. Young children have not yet fully developed their cognitive abilities. Their perception, judgement and awareness of potentially dangerous situations are not adequately developed to enable them to cope with the road traffic.
Children are not easily visible and often act impulsively, which means if you are driving around a school take special care, to ensure we keep our children safe. Remember that children copy adults so you need to encourage good road sense, watch them closely and lead by example.
Our Keeping your Child Safe Around Schools flyer contains more information including helpful tips and parking examples.
