What are the parking rules in New Zealand?

If parking in town, you will be required to put money in the parking meter and place the parking ticket inside the car on the dashboard where it can be seen by parking enforcement officials. 

Other Basic parking rules include:

  • You must not obstruct other persons or vehicles using the car park.
  • You must not park in any area marked 'reserved' or 'no parking'.
  • You must not occupy more than one parking bay.
  • You must not park in a mobility bay without a current mobility window pass.
