Motorcycle Parking Rules

Post by BillWest » Thu Feb 01, 2018 8:22 pm

Lawry contacted the City of Stirling regarding the number of available bays for motorcycle parking.
Their response:

In respect to the current allocation of dedicated motorcycle bays along the City’s coastline, while it is appreciated that the City has only few dedicated motorcycle parking bays along the coastline, motorcycles are classified as a vehicle under the Road Traffic Code 2000 (RTC) and are subject to exactly the same parking restrictions as other motor vehicles (cars) with the only exception being that they are permitted to park in marked motorcycle bays (which cars are not). They can, therefore, be parked anywhere that a standard sized car is permitted. This includes on-street parking as well as formalized parking bays.

Direct from their website:

Motorcycle parking

Specialised bays are provided for motorcycles and motorcycles only, however, motorcycles are permitted to park in regular parking bays. Motorcycles may park for free within the City's paid parking areas.

Further research finds the following.

The City of Perth has this:

Kerbside - On-Street

You must park in a marked motorcycle bay. Parking in a regular bay or on the footpath will attract an infringement.
You must obey time restrictions shown on the signage.
Paid parking for motorcycles applies in the City of Perth. Where fees are payable, it will be indicated on the signage below the time restrictions.

The City of Fremantle:

Motorbike parking

Motorbike bays are located around the city and are free of charge. They may have time restrictions - refer to the displayed signs. Motorbikes are permitted to park in car bays, however applicable parking fees must be paid and stated time limits apply. When purchasing a ticket to park your motorbike in a car bay, we suggest that you retain the tear-off section of the ticket so that proof of purchase can be provided should an infringement be issued due to the ticket having blown away or been removed.

I hope you know your city/council boundaries.
