ROAD RULES 2014 - REG 181

Stopping in a works zone

181 Stopping in a works zone

(1) A driver must not stop in a works zone unless the driver is driving a vehicle that is:
(a) engaged in construction work in or near the zone, or
(b) dropping off, or picking up, passengers.
Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
Note : Subrule (1) (b) is not uniform with the corresponding paragraph in rule 181 of the Australian Road Rules . However, the corresponding paragraph in the Australian Road Rules allows another law of this jurisdiction to permit the driver of a vehicle to stop in a works zone. Different rules may apply in other Australian jurisdictions.
(2) A
"works zone" is a length of a road to which a works zone sign applies.

Note 1 for diagram : There is another permitted version of this sign--see the diagram in Schedule 3.
Note 2 for diagram : A works zone sign may have an arrow pointing in a different direction and anything on the sign may be differently arranged--see rule 316 (4).
