School Crossings

Understanding the Rules at a School Crossing

Drivers must take responsibility for parking safely at all times, especially around school crossings.

When driving near school crossings:

  • Please keep the children's crossing clear.
  • Parking is not allowed 20 metres before a school crossing or 10 metres after the crossing (unless otherwise signposted). Parking within this area makes it difficult for children and the crossing supervisor to get a clear view of the road.
  • It is illegal to double-park your car (i.e. you are not allowed to stop next to a parked car).
