So the NSW government is going digital with parking signs in the hope it will clear up the confusion.
The Smart Signage trial will begin in Sydney’s CBD next month as part of the government’s $695 million Smart Technology Corridors Program.
Metropolitan roads minister Natalie Ward said the digital signs will provide information to drivers on timeframes for clearways, bus zones, no stopping zones, loading zones and up-to-date timed parking.
“The aim of this trial is to make deciphering messages on parking signs easy,” she said.
“Smart Signage will replace confusing parking, clearway and bus zone signs with one simple, digital sign that is updated and monitored remotely.
“Not only will this technology potentially reduce parking fines, putting money back in people’s pockets, but it will also help prevent accidental parking in clearways, which adds greatly to congestion.”
Motorists using Chalmers Street, Surry Hills, between Cleveland and Devonshire streets will see the Smart Signage trial kick off November 21 and run for up to 18 months.
A trial is also planned for Elizabeth Street, between Park Street and Liverpool Street, Sydney in the near future.
Ward said the community will be kept up to date on any work being carried out in their local area for a Smart Signage trial as well as timeframes.
