Road Rules 2008
Current version for 1 October 2014 to date (accessed 28 November 2014 at 05:20)

181   Stopping in a works zone

(1)  A driver must not stop in a works zone unless the driver is driving a vehicle that is:
(a)  engaged in construction work in or near the zone, or
(b)  dropping off, or picking up, passengers.

Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.

Note. Subrule (1) (b) is not uniform with the corresponding paragraph in rule 181 of the Australian Road Rules. However, the corresponding paragraph in the Australian Road Rules allows another law of this jurisdiction to permit the driver of a vehicle to stop in a works zone. Different rules may apply in other Australian jurisdictions.
(2)  A works zone is a length of a road to which a works zone sign applies.
