How will motorcycle (scooter) riders access the designated trial parking areas?
A driveway access point is located adjacent to the Light Square designated motorcycle trial parking area to assist with safe access, not impacting on pedestrian movements.
The Victoria Square trial location has a service road, which will be used by motorcyclists to access the parking area.
Motorcyclists are not under any circumstances able to ride along the footpaths.
How will the motorcycle (scooter) areas be designated?
Motorcycle (scooter) riders can only park in the footpath areas designated. Signs and line marking will be applied to delineate the area where you can park your motorcycle.
During the trial period any motorcycle (scooter) found parked outside of the designated footpath area will in the first instance be given a warning; however should they offend again they may be issued a fine of $91 in accordance with Australian Road Rule regulation 197. Fines may also be issued by SAPOL, which would also attract a $60 victims of crime levy.
Will there be interactions between people riding motorcycles (scooters) and pedestrians?
The locations selected for the trial do not require motorcycles (scooters) to cross footpath areas or pedestrian desire lines. Unlike the recently changed laws regarding riding bicycles along footpaths, riding a motorcycle (scooter) on a footpath remains an offence.
Will the motorcycle parking be free, and will there be time limits imposed on the parking?
During the trial, the motorcycle and scooter parking will be free, consistent with all other on-street motorcycle and scooter parking in the City of Adelaide.
Time limits will be unrestricted during the trial, but may be reviewed in the future as part of a broader on-street motorcycle parking review.
