200 Stopping on roads--heavy and long vehicles

(1) The driver of a heavy vehicle, or long vehicle, must not stop on a length of road that is not in a built-up area, except on the shoulder of the road.
Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
Note :
"Built-up area" is defined in the Dictionary, and
"shoulder" is defined in rule 12.
(2) The driver of a heavy vehicle, or long vehicle, must not stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour, unless the driver is permitted to stop on the length of road for longer than 1 hour by information on or with a traffic control device, or under subrule (2A), (2A-1) or (2A-2).
Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
Note 1 :
"Traffic control device" and
"with" are defined in the Dictionary.
Note 2 : Subrule (2) is not uniform with the corresponding subrule in rule 200 of the Australian Road Rules . However, the corresponding subrule in the Australian Road Rules allows another law of this jurisdiction to permit a driver of a heavy vehicle or long vehicle to stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour. Different rules may apply in other Australian jurisdictions.
(2A) The driver of a heavy vehicle, or long vehicle, other than a bus, is permitted to stop on a length of road in a built up area for longer than 1 hour if, throughout the period when the vehicle is stopped on the length of road, the driver is engaged in dropping off, or picking up, goods.
(2A-1) The driver of a heavy vehicle, or a long vehicle, is permitted to stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour if:
(a) the driver is carrying out functions under the road transport legislation, or
(b) the driver is complying with a direction given by a police officer or other person carrying out functions under the road transport legislation, or
(c) the heavy vehicle or long vehicle is a bus.
Note 1 :
"Bus" is defined in the Dictionary and
"road transport legislation" is defined in the Act.
Note 2 : This subrule is an additional NSW subrule. There is no corresponding subrule in rule 200 of the Australian Road Rules .
(2A-2) The driver of a heavy vehicle, or a long vehicle, is permitted to stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour if the vehicle is stopped for a purpose that is ancillary to or connected with the lawful carrying out of a filming project (within the meaning of the Local Government Act 1993 ) that is approved under that Act.
Note : This subrule is an additional NSW subrule. There is no corresponding subrule in rule 200 of the Australian Road Rules .
(3) In this rule:

"heavy vehicle" means a vehicle with a GVM of 4.5 tonnes or more.

"long vehicle" means a vehicle that, together with any load or projection, is 7.5 metres long, or longer.

"road" does not include a road related area, but includes any shoulder of the road.
Note 1 :
"GVM" is defined in the Act,
"road related area" is defined in rule 13, and
"shoulder" is defined in rule 12.
Note 2 :
"Vehicle" includes a combination--see rule 15 (d).
