Indicated by the sign shown here, fire lanes are found at shopping centres, grocery stores, event centres, community centres, and other public venues. Fire lanes ensure first responders can quickly access emergency situations.
You are allowed to stop (pick up/drop off passengers, etc.), but you are not allowed to park for any length of time. The vehicle is considered to be parked when the driver's seat is unoccupied, or the vehicle is stationary and not in the process of loading/unloading passengers.
Fines range up to $300 per violation.
Note: Vehicles are not allowed to stop, for any reason, in a fire lane that is designated as No Stopping
