Part 12 Division 6 Rule 199
199   Stopping near a postbox
(1)  A driver must not stop on a road within 3 metres of a public postbox, unless the driver:
(a)  is dropping off, or picking up, passengers or mail, or
(b)  stops at a place on a length of road, or in an area, to which a parking control sign applies and the driver is permitted to stop at that place under these Rules.
Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
Note 1.
 Parking control sign and public postbox are defined in the Dictionary.
Note 2.
 Rule 199 (2) of the Australian Road Rules, which contains a definition of public postbox, has not been reproduced in these Rules. The definition in the Australian Road Rules allows the term to be defined in another law of this jurisdiction. Accordingly, a definition of the term is set out in the Dictionary.
