Parking around schools

The City of Casey is one of Australia's fastest growing regions and almost half of our community consists of families with children.  

As our city continues to grow, so does the challenge of making sure our school zones are as safe and accessible as possible. 

Council's priority is ensuring the safety of Casey's school community during school drop off and pick up times.

Common parking offences around schools

Motorists are responsible for understanding parking restrictions in their school zone and to ensure they obey the parking rules to keep our school children, pedestrians and other road users safe. 

Parking inspectors from the City of Casey patrol schools during the morning and afternoon. A fine will be issued for any breaches of the Road Safety Road Rules.

The most common parking and traffic offences around schools in Casey are:

  • Stopping on a children’s crossing
  • Stopping in a ‘no stopping’ area
  • Stopping on the right hand side of a vehicle already stopped at the kerb side (i.e. double parking)
  • Stopping within 10 metres of an intersection.
  • Stopping in a bus zone
  • Driving through a children’s crossing while a pedestrian is on it
  • Parking in a ‘no parking’ area
  • Parking on a nature strip.
