How to park legally

Drivers on the Sunshine Coast should be aware of the local parking rules. Parking on the Sunshine Coast is regulated by the Transport Operations Road Use Management Act, the Transport Operations (Road Use Management - Road Rules) Regulation 2009 and local laws. It is the driver's responsibility to know and comply with these rules.

Unless otherwise signed, you must park your vehicle parallel to and as close to the left side of the road as possible.
