Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004

Part 3 Traffic signs and signals

Traffic control devices

3.1 General requirements about places controlled by traffic control devices

(1)

Subject to subclauses (2) and (3), if traffic at any place is controlled by a traffic control device, a person (including a pedestrian) using the road at that place must comply with the instructions given by that traffic control device that apply to them.

(2)

If traffic signs have been installed at a place controlled by traffic signals, then, in so far as the instructions given by the traffic signals are inconsistent with those given by the traffic signs, a person (including a pedestrian) using the road at that place must comply with the instructions given by the traffic signs that apply to them and not those given by the traffic signals.

(3)

If at any time the traffic at any place at which a traffic control device is installed is controlled by an enforcement officer, the officer’s directions override any instruction that may be given by the traffic control device.
