The wheel stop should be placed an equal distance between the side lines of the car space. The Australian standard according to AS2890.1:2004, states the distance from the wall or kerb that the wheel stop should be positioned is as follows:
Standard Kerb (up to 150mm high) where cars:
- Front in: 620mm from the kerb to the back of the wheel stop
- Rear In: 900mm from the kerb to the back of the wheel stop
High Kerb or Wall (higher than 150mm) where cars:
- Front in: 820mm from the kerb to the back of the wheel stop
- Rear in: 1100mm from the kerb to the back of the wheel stop
