Yellow Edge Lines

What do they mean? 

Council is using unbroken yellow edge lines on the side of roads to indicate No Stopping zones. 

These painted yellow lines are more durable, easier to maintain and have less impact on the visual appearance of an area than road signs.

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 that 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 check out Rule 169 of the Road Rules 2014 (No Stopping on a road with a yellow edge line) and all of the road rules at Roads and Maritime website.
