Footpath parking of motorcycles is legal in Victoria, unless specifically prohibited by signs at a location. Motorcycle riders can legally park on a footpath, as long as they don’t inconvenience, obstruct, hinder or prevent the free passage of any pedestrian or other vehicle.
For more information see the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules rule 197.
To help motorcyclists comply with this road rule, the Victorian Motorcycle Advisory Council (the State Government’s peak advisory body on motorcycle matters and policy) has prepared some simple guidelines. These apply throughout Victoria, and are particularly useful when parking in busy metropolitan areas and townships where there are a large number of pedestrians and motorcyclists.
Read the Guidelines to motorcycle parking on footpaths for more information.
