Yellow Edge Lines

What do they mean?

Council is using unbroken yellow edge lines on the side of roads to indicate 'No Stopping' zones.   This means a driver must not stop at the side of a road marked with a continuous yellow edge line.  These areas need to be kept clear so drivers and pedestrians have a clear view of each other and road safety is maintained.

Police and council parking officers can enforce this road rule, without any other road signs or indications required.

You can view Rule 169 of the Road Rules 2014 (No Stopping on a road with a yellow edge line) and all road rules on Roads and Maritime Services website
