Give Way signs and dividing roads

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by Vertical C, May 31, 2010.

  1. All

    Just wanted to ask what people thought of a particular situation. If there is two lanes heading in the same direction, with a give way sign on the right of the right hand lane and a dividing piece of concrete about half a metre wide between the lanes. Does the give way sign apply to the left lane?

    Anyone also have any supporting law as well.

    Thanks in advance
  2. umm... pic? pretty please?
  3. Is there a broken line at the intersection where cars would normally pull up, or an unbroken line or no line?

    Can you link to the intersection on google maps, or tell us the street names so we can look at it?
  4. +1 to Day, the lines on the road will give you the answer.
  5. There is both a dotted line and a unbroken line on both sides. You guys might have a point about that.

    It is in a car park so no google maps will have to get a pic. Thanks for the replies will get back.
  6. Standard road rules apply, even though its a carpark.

    In multi-laned roads, regulatory signs must exist on both sides of the road. e.g. if a speed sign is missing from one side (hopefully you noticed they are normally on both sides), you could argue (at your own risk) that it does not apply to you.

    hmmmm can't seem to find any legislation about double signage on multi-lane roads. Just seems to be adopted as a standard/preferred practice.
