Road access signs

    (1)     A driver must not drive on a length of road to which a road access sign applies if information on or with the sign indicates that the driver or the driver's vehicle is not permitted beyond the sign.

Penalty:     3 penalty units.


"Driver's vehicle", length of road and with are defined in the dictionary.

    (2)     A road access sign on a road applies to the length of road beginning at the sign (including any road into which the length of road merges) and ending—

        (a)     if the sign is on a freeway—at an end freeway sign or end road access sign on the road; or

        (b)     if the sign is not on a freeway—at the nearer of the following—

              (i)     if the road ends at a T-intersection or dead end—the end of the road;

              (ii)     an end road access sign on the road.

Rule 97(3) amended by S.R. No. 153/2019 rule 4(Sch.  1 item 2).

    (3)     This rule does not apply to the driver of a vehicle which is being driven on the length of road to which a road access sign applies with the written consent of the Secretary.
