Current version for 28 October 2019 to date (accessed 19 November 2019 at 07:31)
Part 12 Division 6 Rule 200
200   Stopping on roads—heavy and long vehicles
(1)  The driver of a heavy vehicle, or long vehicle, must not stop on a length of road that is not in a built-up area, except on the shoulder of the road.
Maximum penalty—20 penalty units.
Note.
 Built-up area is defined in the Dictionary, and shoulder is defined in rule 12.
(2)  The driver of a heavy vehicle, or long vehicle, must not stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour, unless the driver is permitted to stop on the length of road for longer than 1 hour by information on or with a traffic control device, or under subrule (2A), (2A–1) or (2A–2).
Maximum penalty—20 penalty units.
Note 1.
 Traffic control device and with are defined in the Dictionary.
Note 2.
 Subrule (2) is not uniform with the corresponding subrule in rule 200 of the Australian Road Rules. However, the corresponding subrule in the Australian Road Rules allows another law of this jurisdiction to permit a driver of a heavy vehicle or long vehicle to stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour. Different rules may apply in other Australian jurisdictions.
(2A)  The driver of a heavy vehicle, or long vehicle, other than a bus, is permitted to stop on a length of road in a built up area for longer than 1 hour if, throughout the period when the vehicle is stopped on the length of road, the driver is engaged in dropping off, or picking up, goods.
(2A–1)  The driver of a heavy vehicle, or a long vehicle, is permitted to stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour if—
(a)  the driver is carrying out functions under the road transport legislation, or
(b)  the driver is complying with a direction given by a police officer or other person carrying out functions under the road transport legislation, or
(c)  the heavy vehicle or long vehicle is a bus.
Note 1.
 Bus is defined in the Dictionary and road transport legislation is defined in the Act.
Note 2.
 This subrule is an additional NSW subrule. There is no corresponding subrule in rule 200 of the Australian Road Rules.
(2A–2)  The driver of a heavy vehicle, or a long vehicle, is permitted to stop on a length of road in a built-up area for longer than 1 hour if the vehicle is stopped for a purpose that is ancillary to or connected with the lawful carrying out of a filming project (within the meaning of the Local Government Act 1993) that is approved under that Act.
Note.
 This subrule is an additional NSW subrule. There is no corresponding subrule in rule 200 of the Australian Road Rules.
(3)  In this rule—
heavy vehicle means a vehicle with a GVM of 4.5 tonnes or more.
long vehicle means a vehicle that, together with any load or projection, is 7.5 metres long, or longer.
road does not include a road related area, but includes any shoulder of the road.
Note 1.
 GVM is defined in the Act, road related area is defined in rule 13, and shoulder is defined in rule 12.
Note 2.
 Vehicle includes a combination—see rule 15(d).
