Parking laws

Understanding parking signs

All parking restrictive and permissive signs in Fremantle comply with Australian Standards.

With some minor differences amongst councils, most parking signs look very similar. Should you have questions about an area, car park, or street, please contact the customer service centre on 1300 MYFREO (1300 693 736) and they will assist you.

Parking signs may have multiple conditions and restrictions on them. Drivers should follow the signs carefully, assess where the restrictions apply via arrows on the posts and obtain a ticket or abide by time restrictions when necessary. Failure to do so may result in an infringement being issued, or in extreme circumstances, impound of vehicles.
