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

Rule 174(1) revoked by S.R. No. 121/2020 rule 7(2).

    *     *     *     *     *

Rule 174(2) substituted by S.R. No. 121/2020 rule 7(3).

    (2)     A driver must not stop on a bicycle crossing or within 10 metres before the traffic lights nearest to the driver at the bicycle crossing, and 3 metres after the traffic lights, 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.


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

    (3)     For this rule, distances are measured—

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

        (b)     as shown in the example.

Rule 174(4) substituted by S.R. No. 121/2020 rule 7(4).

    (4)     In this rule—

"bicycle crossing "means an area of road

        (a)     with bicycle crossing lights facing bicycle riders crossing the road; and

        (b)     with traffic lights facing traffic travelling on the road; and

        (c)     that is not at an intersection;

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


"Intersection", parking control sign and traffic lights are defined in the dictionary, road related area is defined in rule 13 and shoulder is defined in rule 12.
