When driving in Australia, it is important to park properly to avoid getting a ticket.
- You can park off-street where no NO STANDING, NO PARKING, or other restrictions apply.
- You can park at carparks or parking stations, usually at an hourly rate.
- You can park where there are parking meters so long as you feed them with the right money (have $2 and $1 coins handy) and dont overstay.
- Traffic in a roundabout flows in a clockwise direction.
- In a two-lane roundabout, you keep to the left lane if youre turning left or going straight ahead.
- You keep to the right lane if youre turning right. You can also use the right lane in a two-lane roundabout if youre going straight ahead.
- You use your left-turn signal for a left turn, the right-turn signal for a right turn. If youre turning right and are on the right lane, switch on your left-turn signal when exiting. It has become law in New South Wales that motorists must signal left, in every instance, whenever exiting from a roundabout.
