Footpath parking

Parked vehicles may not block any portion of a footpath, including the crossover

Parked vehicles may not block any portion of a footpath, including the crossover, because pedestrians may be forced onto the road. This creates a safety hazard for pedestrians – in particular, those with prams, people with disability and children.

Parking on the nature strip (verge)

Parking on nature strips (verges), unless authorised, is prohibited

Parking on nature strips (verges), unless authorised, is prohibited unless you are the owner/occupier of the premises adjacent to the verge or they have given you authorisation to park there. The local laws provide further information and clarity around all local parking laws, available below under ‘Related Links’.

No parking

Drivers may not stop on a length of carriageway or an area where a ‘no parking’ restriction applies

A driver may not stop on a length of carriageway or an area where a ‘no parking’ restriction applies unless:

  • They are dropping off or collecting passengers or goods
  • The vehicle is not left unattended
  • The dropping off or collection of goods or passengers is completed within two minutes.

No stopping areas

No stopping areas are indicated by either a continuous yellow line or no stopping signage

No stopping areas are indicated by either a continuous yellow line or no stopping signage. The driver of a vehicle may not stop on a carriageway where no stopping restrictions apply. This includes droping off passengers or goods.

Obstructing access to a driveway/right-of-way

A vehicle may not be stopped so that any portion of it is front of a path, driveway crossover or right-of-way in a position that obstructs access by vehicles or pedestrians to or from that path.

Facing the wrong direction on the road and within bays

Parking against traffic flow is illegal in Western Australia and can be hazardous when exiting from a parking place. Your vehicle must be parked facing the same direction as the flow of traffic at all times.
