Yellow Kerbside Lines Installed in the Armidale CBD

Yellow edge kerbside lines indicating a no stopping zone have been marked out by Council contractors across some streets in the Armidale CBD. Yellow kerbside line marking is used to prohibit kerbside stopping of vehicles. Road marking is installed to improve traffic flow and safety for motorists and pedestrians. Road users who disregard road markings could be fined more than $300 and lose points.

Parking vehicles for sale on footpaths / nature strips

The parking of motor vehicles on footpaths / nature strips and offering them for sale is an offence under the Road Rules. This is legislation set by the State Government, and it is Council’s responsibility to enforce these rules.

A footpath / nature strip is defined as an area between the road and adjacent land eg. the area between your letterbox and the roadway.

Motorists must ensure that the footpath area is kept clear to ensure the safety of pedestrians and prevent them from being forced to walk on the road.

When Council identifies an issue, a warning may be issued to the registered vehicle owner. However, based on potential danger to the public and other road users, a warning may not always apply and vehicle owners may receive a fine in the first instance.

Infringement Notice Disputes

All enquiries or representations regarding Penalty Notices/Parking Fines are to be addressed to the State Debt Recovery Office, guidelines are available on the State Debt Recovery website.
