Traffic Bylaw 2015

This bylaw includes rules about the use of vehicles on council-controlled land that is not part of the Auckland transport system, like parks and beaches.

Where the Traffic Bylaw applies

The bylaw covers traffic management in public places, like:

  • parks
  • beaches
  • off-street parking facilities (like at libraries and community centres)
  • council-owned car parking buildings.

What the Traffic Bylaw does

The bylaw:

  • enables the designation of roads as one-way
  • enables vehicles to be prohibited or restricted in public places where necessary
  • enables the setting of conditions of use of parking places
  • enables the reservation of parking places for people with disabilities
  • prohibits people from parking in public places not designed or constructed to accommodate a parked vehicle
  • prohibits broken-down vehicles being left in public places for more than a week
  • enables the setting of speed limits.

The bylaw does not cover:

  • parking permits in residential streets
  • privately owned car parking facilities or car parking buildings
  • sale of vehicles on the side of the road
  • most roads in Auckland.

These matters and speed limits are addressed in Auckland Transport's bylaws.
