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 in terms of parking restrictions, please call our customer service centre on 08 9432 9999 and we will assist you.
Below signs are most common signs that you may see during your visit:
No stopping sign means that vehicles are not permitted to stop where the signs apply. Signs cover areas that fall between arrows. If there are further comments on the signs such as “verge”, “road”, “road or verge” or certain periods/times such as netball season, weekends, school hours, restrictions apply under those conditions.
No parking sign means that vehicles cannot park where the signs apply. You may remain stopped in your vehicle for a short period of time in No Parking areas. However, you may receive a move on notice from an authorised person, and you shall do so. It is advised that you do not stop in No Parking areas and move further to an available space.
Parking permissive sign means that vehicles are permitted to park in this area, under conditions prescribed on the signs. These conditions may include:
- Ticket parking / fee payable – means that a ticket needs to be purchased to park legally.
- 1/2P, 1P, 2P etc – means that vehicles can park only for the duration of time on the sign post. Please be aware that if the sign states ticket parking, you must obtain a ticket.
Yellow lines mean no stopping along where it is marked yellow lines. They are often found at intersections and by right of ways.
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.
