Parking

Parking

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Parking and Parking Facilities Local Laws 2009 is designed to maximise the use of available space and to provide access to parking for all motorists, reflecting the requirements of businesses, visitors, residents and traffic management.
Illegal parking can be dangerous to pedestrians, cyclists and other road users and causes frustration, inconvenience and irritation.

Think before you park
It is the responsibility of the driver to be familiar with the Road Traffic Code 2000 and Parking and Parking Facilities Local Laws 2009 when parking within the City. The laws stated in these legal documents are enforceable at all times and do not require signage, however, parking signs may be installed to reinforce or contribute to parking restrictions within the road reserve.

On-the-spot fines apply for breaches of these laws.

 
Time restrictions
A driver shall not park continuously in an area where time restriction signs applies, for longer than the period indicated by information on or with the sign.
When the permitted time limit has expired, the vehicle must be removed from the area for not less than one hour. It's an offence to return to any side of that same road within one hour.
No stopping/parking
A driver shall not stop on a length of carriageway, or in an area, to which a 'No Stopping/Parking' sign or solid yellow line applies. Vehicles may only stop in these zones to comply with other regulations (for example at traffic lights or to avoid an accident).
Parking for people with disabilities
Parking bays for people with disabilities are specially marked by a unique symbol on both signage and line marking and can be easily distinguished from regular parking bays.
Only vehicles displaying a current registered Disability Parking Permit on the windscreen or dashboard are allowed to park in these permit areas. A plaque or sticker bearing a disabled emblem isn't valid.
Authorised permit holders who don't require a wheelchair or walking frame can park in any bay within a car park or street and still receive concessions, leaving the extra wide bays for those who need them. The City allows holders of Disability Parking Permits to park in street or kerbside time restricted areas for double the signposted time.
Motorcycle parking
Specialised bays are provided for motorcycles and motorcycles only. Motorcycles are permitted to park in regular parking bays however, other parking restrictions may apply.
Oversize vehicle parking
If a vehicle (including trailers) is too long or too wide to fit within a single parking bay, then they may park within the minimum number of parking stalls to safely park that vehicle.
School parking

Most schools have parking restrictions in place around them, including pick up and drop off areas. All schools prohibit vehicles parking on the verge in the vicinity of the school.

Vehicles for sale
You cannot park or leave a vehicle on any portion of a roadway or verge, to display the vehicle for sale.
Parking against the flow of traffic
Vehicles that park on the street cannot park facing into oncoming traffic.
 
Oasis parking
The Oasis Parking lot has a pick up and drop off area, where a vehicle can park for no longer than 5 minutes. It is also prohibited to park on the reserve in the middle of the pickup and drop-off area.
 
Failing to display a valid parking ticket
All vehicles parked at the airport must display a valid parking ticket on the dashboard of their vehicle, with the tickets expiry time clearly visible.
Not displaying an unexpired parking
Any vehicle parked at the airport that have a ticket, should not stay past the time indicated on the ticket.
