ROAD SAFETY ROAD RULES 2017 - REG 171

Stopping on or near a children's crossing

    (1)     A driver must not stop on a children's crossing, or on the road within 20 metres before the crossing and 10 metres after the crossing unless the driver stops at a place on a length of road, or in an area, to which a parking control sign applies and the driver is permitted to stop at that place under these Rules.

Penalty:     3 penalty units.

Notes

1     Children's crossing is defined in rule 80. Parking control sign is defined in the dictionary.

2     A driver stops within a particular distance from a children's crossing if the driver stops so any part of the driver's vehicle is within that distance—see rule 350(2).

    (2)     For this rule, distances are measured—

        (a)     in the direction in which the driver is driving; and

        (b)     as shown in example 1 or 2.

    (3)     In this rule—

"road" does not include a road related area, but includes any shoulder of the road.

Note

Road related area is defined in rule 13. Shoulder is defined in rule 12.

Examples

Example 1

Measurement of distance—children's crossing with red and white posts

Example 2

Measurement of distance—children's crossing with 2 parallel continuous or broken lines
