Traffic rules

The traffic regulations describe how a road user must behave on public roads, so that traffic flows safely and smoothly. It is expected that all road users know and apply the traffic regulations. Sometimes traffic regulations will appear a bit unclear. However, all rules in the regulations have been well thought through, so it is also important to know the underlying line of thought.


Speed

Speed

The speed depends on the type of road and the conditions in which you are driving. Do not drive faster than the speed limit and make sure you can drive safely and comfortably


Speed bump

Speed bumps are placed to slow down traffic.


Residential area

Pedestrians walk on the road in a residential area, but they are not allowed to hinder traffic.


Built-up area

The built-up area is an area designated by the government where there is a lot of construction. Because of the higher population density, drivers have to take extra account of other road users. Pay extra attention in the vicinity of crossings, schools and parks.


Expressway

An expressway is a public road, similar to a motorway but often with intersections and traffic lights.


Motorway

A motorway is a public road intended for the traffic of fast vehicles, such as cars, motorbikes, trucks and buses. On a motorway there is a central reservation between the two directions and there are no traffic lights or intersections.


Ramp

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.


Exit

High-speed roads generally have an exit / exit lane to give you time to reduce speed.


Cyclist street

A bicycle street is a street in which the cyclists are the most important road users. Motor vehicles are allowed, but cars are not allowed to overtake cyclists.


Play street

A public road where temporarily and during certain hours at the entrances a fence is placed with the indication 'play street'.


Emergency lane

The strip located to the right of the carriageway of the motorway or the motorway.


Rush-hour lane

A rush-hour lane is an extra lane on a lane of a motorway. The rush-hour lane is often at the expense of the emergency lane. The rush-hour lane is only opened in heavy traffic.

No any reaction with this post last Nov 5? "There is confusion in the Practise Test : Driving License B (exam 1 and exam 2). Its about how many meters you should put your triangle in a motor way first I chose the 100m and it was wrong then I took the exam 2 I chose 30 and it was wrong either. So, which one is true?"
