A kiss and ride zone has exactly the same rules as a "No Parking" sign during the school zone times. You are allowed to pull up and assist your child to exit via the pavement side door - "the safety door". You may get out of the car to unload baggage, but you must remain within three metres of the car. And you must leave within two minutes. If you're dropping a child to school, make sure you 'Know the Signs'(PDF, 3MB) - check the attached poster and watch the video on the website to see the zone in action. Pulling up in designated bus zones or no stopping zones is illegal and unsafe for children alighting from vehicles. To protect our children, penalties and demerit points apply for anyone breaking the rules.
