Loading zone, two minutes maximum
Passenger Loading Zones allow you to set down and pick up your child and usually allow you to stop for two minutes. This should be enough time to help your child with luggage and seatbelts. You are not allowed to leave your car and go into the school.
How to use two minute zones
use the zone like a quick moving taxi rank
move forward as space becomes available
ensure children watch for their ride and move promptly to the vehicle
load and unload passengers only at the head of the line
stay in the car unless loading baggage or passengers
park for more than two minutes - you can be fined
leave the vehicle, except to help load or unload. This is an offence during the hours of operation
reverse into the zone - you will put other children in danger; join the queue
call children to the bottom of the queue or across the road.
