Safety Around Schools - School Zones and Parking Rules

School Zones

40km/h School Zones help protect children on their way to and from schools. School Zones are in force on all days which are not a weekend, public holiday or a publicly notified school holiday for government schools.

Council’s Compliance team play an important part in keeping pedestrians and motorists safe. The team is active around schools to protect children and provide a safe environment for children arriving and leaving school

Increased fines and demerit points apply for certain School Zone offences with some offences included in double demerit periods. The Transport for NSW (TfNSW) website has information on fines and demerit point offences: Offences on NSW Roads

Information about School Zones and understanding the road rules, parking signage and penalties is available here: School Zones and Parking Rules - Penalties and Demerit Points
