ROAD SAFETY ROAD RULES 2017 - REG 172

Stopping on or near a pedestrian crossing (except at an intersection)

    (1)     A driver must not stop on a pedestrian crossing that is not at an intersection, 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     Intersection and parking control sign are defined in the dictionary. Pedestrian crossing is defined in rule 81.

2     A driver stops within a particular distance from a 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 the example.

    (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 and shoulder is defined in rule 12.
