Yellow Edge Lines: What do they mean?
Published on 04 October 2019
City of Ryde, like many other road authorities, are 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 environment.
Drivers must not stop at the side of a road marked with a continuous yellow edge line. Under Road Rule 169 (No Stopping on a road with a yellow edge line) incurs an infringement of $268 if not adhered to*. Police and council rangers can enforce this road rule without any other road signs or indications required.
No Stopping Zones need to be kept clear so that drivers and pedestrians have a clear view of each other and road safety is maintained.
*There are some exceptions in the case of emergencies or to comply with another rule. Further information can be found here.
