Rules for parking and stopping

It’s a universal pain we all understand, the pain of searching for a car park. Here, we break down the key things you need to know about clearways, parking in driveways and nature strips to make your life easier.

The summaries RACV provide on Victorian road rules are based on the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017. We make sure to reference the exact rule where possible. When reading, keep in mind that we’re providing general information, not legal advice. If you’re looking for specific questions on any legal matter, consult with a lawyer for help.
