ROAD SAFETY ROAD RULES 2017 - REG 173

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

    (1)     A driver must not stop on a marked foot crossing that is not at an intersection, or on the road within 10 metres before the traffic lights pole nearest to the driver at the crossing and 3 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", marked foot crossing , parking control sign and traffic lights pole are defined in the dictionary.

2     A driver stops within a particular distance from a traffic lights pole or 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.
