Car parking in Cardinia Shire
Parking regulations and restrictions
Timed parking and other parking restrictions are enforced across Cardinia Shire to manage parking fairly and keep people safe:
• It keeps turnover consistent in high traffic areas, giving all community members the chance to park in the most high-demand parking bays. This in turn benefits local businesses in the area.
• It stops people from parking in locations that could risk the safety of pedestrians or prevent motorists from getting a clear view of the roads, such as in school zones or near zebra crossings.
• Illegal parking can also cause traffic delays block access for emergency services.
The Road Safety Road Rules 2017 is Victorian Government legislation, based on the Australian Road Rules model. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that they are aware of and follow these rules.
