A reminder to owners and drivers of heavy/long vehicles that restrictions apply in built up areas in our townships.
Our entire township areas are described, by definition, as a built up area and heavy/long vehicles are restricted by time in where they can park:
• Under the State road rules, rule 200(2), the driver of a heavy (4.5T GVM) or long vehicle must not stop on a length of road in a built up area for longer than 1 hour.
• Under Councils Local Law number 1 (Streets & Roads Local Law), a heavy vehicle (weighing more than 4T GVM) must not be parked on privately owned residential land for a period greater than 2 hours.
The State law is enforceable across Victoria, as local laws are enforceable across the municipality, and infringement notices are issued by Authorised Officers of Council or the Victoria Police.
