Parking distance from kerb


When I did my licence there was a requirement to park less than 150mm from the kerb when parallel parking. Is this still the case or what is the current rule?


The distance is 450 mm, not 150 mm. If you are not parked within a demarcated parking bay or parking area, you may not park with the kerbside wheels more than 450 mm into the roadway, unless permitted by a road sign.
