A clearway is a mix of motorway and country road. Things to keep in mind:
No intersecting traffic, but oncoming traffic may occur (rare, cable barriers are often used).
The same rules and prohibitions as on motorways apply.
Accidents occur more frequently than on motorways (shorter entry slip roads, less space to the sides).
Clearways are always indicated by the Clearway sign. There are also country roads with cable barriers that are not clearways. On such roads, intersecting traffic may occur.
A 2+1 road with cable barriers.
When you slow down after a prolonged period of driving at high speeds, it often feels that the speed you are driving at is lower than it actually is. This phenomenon is known as speed blindness, and can result in you misjudging distances and your stopping distance.
The risk of speed blindness increases with:
Wide roads without any distractions.
Quiet and comfortable cars.
Driving at high speeds for a prolonged period.
Heavy lorries may drive at a maximum 90 km/h on motorways and clearways. On other types of road, the maximum speed for heavy lorries is 80 km/h.
