What's On This Week + Reminder About Parking Rules

22nd June, 2018

The ANU recently issued a notice to staff and students regarding the enforcement of parking and road rules on campus, and we felt that it would be useful to bring this to the attention of ANU Film Group members and guests.

The ANU has asked that people visiting the campus after hours or on weekends continue to park with consideration for others and the road rules. To enforce this, ANU parking inspectors will now be patrolling campus on a 24/7 basis to ensure that such rules are complied with, and that designated parking spots (e.g. for drivers with disabilities) are available for those who need them. Drivers who do not comply with road rules may receive an infringement notice.

They have also provided the following reminders:
• When a parking sign does not include restrictive parking hours or days, the sign applies at all times.
• ‘No Parking’ and ‘No Stopping’ signs apply at all times.
• Stopping or parking at yellow edge lines is not permitted at any time.
• To assist in maintaining the campus grounds, parking outside designated car parks (e.g. on the grass, on footpaths, etc) is not permitted.

Should you have any questions about any of the information above, please contact the ANU Parking Office directly at parking@anu.edu.au.
