The striped area is a prohibited zone.
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.”
The Road Traffic Ordinance states that:
“A vehicle may not, with any wheel, drive onto a prohibited zone or cross a continuous line.
If particular caution is observed, however, exceptions may be made to this, if
1. this is necessary in order for the vehicle to pass an obstruction on the road,
2. the space at a junction is otherwise insufficient for the vehicle,
3. a continuous line must be crossed in order to travel to or from a property or equivalent, or
4. in the vehicle's direction of travel, there is a broken line immediately to the right of the continuous line.”
None of these exceptions apply in this situation. You may not therefore drive onto the prohibited zone.
There is also a driving licence book online (2023).
