Keywords

An overview of the keywords about traffic. Here you can easily look up keywords and definitions that you do not know yet.


Driving

Driving is a very complex skill, because you often have to perform with different actions at the same time. Here you will find the basis for safe driving.

Steering

Steering is the collection of components, linkages, etc. which allows any vehicle to follow the desired course. The primary purpose of the steering system is to allow the driver to guide the vehicle. Both hands should be placed on opposite sides of the steering wheel (i.e., left hand between 8 and 10 o’clock and right hand between 2 and 4 o’clock). This position is comfortable and on high-speed roads it allows you to make turns without taking your hands from the wheel.

Local traffic

The vehicles of the residents and their visitors, the vehicles for delivery included.

Traffic conductor

A device installed on the carriageway and intended to channel vehicles traffic. The traffic conductor consists of a road marking, either from an elevation on the carriageway or from both elements together.

Guardrail

A guardrail or crash barrier is a barrier placed next to roads to prevent vehicles from leaving the road in a lateral direction, tilting or traversing the central reservation. This reduces injury to occupants and damage to the car as much as possible.

Barriers

A barrier is a closing mechanism that serves to control the use of a passage or access. Other names that are used are barrier, lever and barel. There are both hand-operated barriers and barriers that are moved by means of a drive.

Low-emission zone

A low-emission zone is a selective admission policy for motor vehicles is used in relation to the environmental nuisance caused by these vehicles because of the quality of life, in particular the environmental and health problems caused by poor air quality.

Residents card

A municipal parking card specifically intended for persons who have their main residence or domicile in the municipality, zone or street indicated on the map.

Crossroad

A crossroad or intersection is a place where two or more roads or streets meet or cross. Crossroads may be classified by number of road segments, traffic controls or lane design.

Roundabout

A roundabout is a kind of circular intersection in which the traffic continuously drives in one direction around a central island. The drivers at the roundabout always have priority.

Traffic lights

By means of light signals, traffic lights control the crossing of an intersection, the access to bridges, tunnels and railway crossings, the access to parking garages and grounds, as well as the access regulation at factories, companies and other closed areas.

Roadmarks

Roadmarks are used on paved roadways to provide guidance and information to drivers and pedestrians. Uniformity of the markings is an important factor in minimizing confusion and uncertainty about their meaning, and efforts exist to standardize such markings across borders. However, countries and areas categorize and specify road surface markings in different ways.

Stop sign

A stop sign is a traffic sign designed to notify drivers that they must come to a complete stop and make sure the intersection is safely clear of vehicles and pedestrians before continuing past the sign.

Give way

A yield or give way sign indicates that merging drivers must prepare to stop if necessary to let a driver on another approach proceed. A driver who stops or slows down to let another vehicle through has yielded the right of way to that vehicle.

Crossing

A crossing is a location on the road that is intended to cross and which is marked as such. They are for pedestrians and cyclists.

Railroad crossing

A railroad crossing is a crossing of a public road through one or more tracks built outside the carriageway.

School-area

A school environment is a place near a school. Pay extra attention to children playing.

Manual transmission

A manual transmission, also known as a manual gearbox, a standard transmission, stick shift, or simply stick, clutch, or gearbox, is a type of transmission used in motor vehicle applications. It uses a driver-operated clutch, usually engaged and disengaged by a foot pedal or hand lever, for regulating torque transfer from the engine to the transmission; and a gear selector that can be operated by hands.

Automatic transmission

An automatic transmission, also called auto, self-shifting transmission, n-speed automatic (where n represents its number of forward gear ratios), or AT, is a type of motor vehicle transmission that automatically changes the gear ratio as the vehicle moves, meaning that the driver does not have to shift the gears manually. Like other transmission systems on vehicles, it allows an internal combustion engine, best suited to run at a relatively high rotational speed, to provide a range of speed and torque outputs necessary for vehicular travel. The number of forward gear ratios is often expressed for manual transmissions as well (e.g., 6-speed manual).

Parking

Parking is the act of stopping and disengaging a vehicle and leaving it unoccupied. Parking on one or both sides of a road is often permitted, though sometimes with restrictions. Some buildings have parking facilities for use of the buildings' users. Countries and local governments have rules for design and use of parking spaces. Drivers are responsible for making sure that their vehicle is not a hazard when it is parked. Park your vehicle at a place where it is allowed and make sure it is clearly visible for other road users.

Parallel parking

Parallel parking is a method of parking a vehicle parallel to the road, in line with other parked vehicles. Parallel parking usually requires initially driving slightly past the parking space, parallel to the parked vehicle in front of that space, keeping a safe distance, then followed by reversing into that space. Subsequent position adjustment may require the use of forward and reverse gears.

Park and ride

Park and ride facilities are parking lots with public transport connections that allow commuters and other people heading to city centres to leave their vehicles and transfer to a bus, rail system or carpool for the remainder of the journey. The vehicle is left in the parking lot during the day and retrieved when the owner returns. Park and rides are generally located in the suburbs of metropolitan areas or on the outer edges of large cities.

Alternate-side parking

Alternate-side parking is a traffic law that dictates on which side of a street cars can be parked on a given day. The law is intended to promote efficient flow of traffic, as well as to allow street sweepers and snowplows to reach the curb without parked cars impeding their progress. Some proponents also regard the law, which can be quite inconvenient for drivers, as a way to encourage the use of public transportation. In many towns and cities, alternate-side parking is reserved for certain times of year, or only used during a snow emergency.

Parking meter

A pay and display machine is a type of ticket machine used for regulating parking in urban areas or in car parks. It relies on a customer purchasing a ticket from a machine and displaying the ticket on the dashboard, windscreen or passenger window of the vehicle. Details included on a printed ticket are generally the location and operator of the machine, expiry time, fee paid and time entered.

Parking disc

Disc parking is a system of allowing time-restricted free parking through display of a parking disc or clock disc showing the time at which the vehicle was parked. A patrolling parking attendant can inspect the disc to check whether payment is owed. The system is common in Europe. The original system had been introduced along with establishing a Blue Zone area. The blue zones in the city centers allow for free parking of about 2 hours by using a parking disc.

Disabled parking

A disabled parking permitis displayed upon parking a vehicle permitting the operator of a vehicle to special privileges regarding the parking of that vehicle. These privileges include parking in a space reserved for persons with disabilities, or in some situations, permission to park in a time-limited space for a longer time, or to park at a meter without payment.

Overtaking

Overtaking or passing is the act of one vehicle going past another slower moving vehicle, travelling in the same direction, on a road. When a vehicle is driving slower than the maximum speed, you can overtake the vehicle on the left. Overtaking is a very dangerous maneuver. Only overtake if there is enough space and if the road is completely free. When overtaking a pedestrian, cyclist or moped, there must be at least 1 meter distance. Overtaking is prohibited at crossroads, slopes, dangerous curves and crossings.

Merging

High-speed roads generally have a ramp/slip-in lane to give you time to build up speed. Use the ramp to achieve the same speed as the vehicles on the main road. If you have to wait for space on the main road, drive slower so that you have enough space to merge onto the main road.

Reversing

Reversing is usually done when parking the vehicle. Drivers do not expect a vehicle to be reversing towards them and may not realize it until it is too late. If you miss your turn or exit, do not reverse but go on to where you can safely turn around.

Driving on an M class road in Ukraine, is it legal to remain in the overtaking lane (left or outer lane) of a dual carriageway? Is it not required to return to the inner lane (right hand lane) on a Motorway or M class road where there are two lanes in each direction and a median between these?

Dec 30, 2021

why are there so many private vehicles on our roads today that are using red and blue blinker lights installed on the windshields and or grille? isn't it only for gov't, police,ambulance and the like, used? There are so many unrully users, owners of vehicles who use those lights just to intimidate other law abiding road users. Can't the gov't do something about this matter? ASAP!

There's no such thing as main road priority anymore. There is only a hierarchy of country roads, but it pretty much doesn't apply to roads within city limits.
