Prohibited zone (M9)
“The marking consists of angled or oblique lines depending on the conditions at the location. Part or all of the area can be painted white.” (Road Sign Ordinance)
“A vehicle may not, with any wheel, drive onto a prohibited zone.” (Road Traffic Ordinance)
Run-through of the alternative answers:
- Yes, because the moped driver is positioned to the side and is clearly indicating that I may overtake.
– Wrong. You are not permitted to drive onto a prohibited zone. Neither can you allow other road-users to influence your actions. Even if the moped driver should wave to you to overtake, you are not permitted to drive onto the prohibited zone.
- Yes, because the area is marked with angled lines.
– Wrong. A prohibited zone can be marked with angled lines or it may be painted entirely in white – there is no difference in the meaning.
- Yes, because I would not otherwise be able to leave a safe and reassuring distance to the side.
– Wrong. It is true that you must leave a safe and reassuring distance to the side, but this does not mean that you may drive onto a prohibited zone. You must refrain from overtaking until you are able to do so while also leaving a safe and reassuring distance to the side.
- Yes, because the moped is obstructing the road.
– Wrong. It is true that you may drive onto a prohibited zone if there is an obstruction in the road, but examples of such an obstruction include a large stone that has fallen from a lorry, or an abandoned car. A moped (or any other vehicle) that is in motion is not regarded as an obstruction.
– Correct. See the quotes at the top.
Am I permitted to overtake the moped if I do not drive onto the prohibited zone?
– If you can do so while also leaving a safe and reassuring distance to the side, then yes. However, this would appear to be difficult in this example, so the answer is probably no, because you will not be able to leave a safe and reassuring distance to the side.
