Footpaths and Driveways


A driver must not stop on a footpath. This blocks pedestrians and other footpath areas as well as sight lines for vehicles using the roadway. 


A driver must not park on or across (or partially across) a driveway blocking access to pedestrians and other vehicles.  However, a driver may stop if they are dropping off or picking up passengers a long as the driver is not obstructing other vehicles, does not leave the vehicle and the dropping off or picking up of the passenger is done within 2 minutes of stopping.


Do not stop in a driveway as per the photo.  This blocks pedestrians and other vehicle access.
