ROAD SAFETY ROAD RULES 2017 - REG 170

Stopping in or near an intersection

    (1)     A driver must not stop in an intersection unless—

        (a)     the driver is permitted to stop at that place under these Rules; or

        (b)     the intersection is a T-intersection without traffic lights and the driver stops along the continuous side of the continuing road at the intersection.

Penalty:     3 penalty units.

Note

"Continuing road", intersection and T-intersection are defined in the dictionary.

    (2)     A driver must not stop on a road within 20 metres from the nearest point of an intersecting road at an intersection with 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.

Notes

1     Parking control sign and traffic lights are defined in the dictionary.

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

    (3)     A driver must not stop on a road within 10 metres from the nearest point of an intersecting road at an intersection without traffic lights, unless the driver stops

        (a)     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; or

        (b)     if the intersection is a T-intersection—along the continuous side of the continuing road at the intersection.

Penalty:     3 penalty units.

Note

Continuing road and T-intersection are defined in the dictionary.

    (4)     For this rule, distances are measured in the direction in which the driver is driving, and—

        (a)     for subrule (2)—as shown in example 1; or

        (b)     for subrule (3)—as shown in example 2.

    (5)     In this rule—

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

Note

Road related area is defined in rule 13, and shoulder is defined in rule 12.
