    Friend noticed a new sign in his apartment building carpark:

    Is the owners corp allowed to deny a resident access to their own property (their garage)?

    They might need to install speed cameras to kick you out for excessive speed.

    I told him to write a '0' after the '5' on every speed limit sign :p

    5? I couldn't even ride a bike 5km/h without falling over.
    No wonder everyone is speeding.

    Not much room to write the 0 though :(

    Worth pointing out that many automatic cars will go faster than 5kph without touching the pedals!

    What's excessive speed? Where's it defined? Is it signposted? How is it measured?

    How many LOL's & OD's have been run over? (Little Old Ladies, old dears).

    Traffic signs on private property are not enforceable from memory.
    What is their policy on burnouts?

    I always though shopping centre signs were not enforceable, but was told by a cop once that isn't the case and you can be booked not stopping at a stop sign. I'm happy to be wrong on this, but even if this is the case, surely it would be up to the police to police this, and not someone on the body corporate? What power do they have?

    Yeah, as far as I know, stop signs in a mall parking lot for instance are not legally enforceable, because really, anyone could put up a sign. Different states maybe...
    But I can't see QTMR for eg overseeing all mall traffic sign placement.

    If private property owners have allowed council to access their properties then laws are enforceable

    Police can and will enforce road rules in car parks (at least in Qld). Back when they introduced rules about locking your vehicle when leaving it unattended they used to patrol the shopping centres I went to quite frequently.

    Good luck!

    But seriously, I live in a strata complex and really hate when cars go probably 30 when its means to be 5-10km.

    Hey @Arnoldus , road rules still apply in there apparently, but I mean if someone sticks up a random stop sign (not QTMR), it's not enforceable.
