Stopping means that the vehicle has come to a halt for a reason other than:
It is forbidden to stop and park before a pedestrian crossing, but not after.
You cannot see the red area. When a pedestrian comes out from the red area, there is practically no margin, which means that you barely have time to react before the accident happens.
The view of the red area is still obscured, but with the difference that you have a much greater safety margin to discover a pedestrian here.
But would it not be safest to prohibit stopping and parking both before and after the crossing?
– Yes, but practical matters must also be taken into consideration. In the cities, there is limited space and a prohibition to park after a crossing would take away many parking spaces. Compare with speed limits: the motorways would be much safer if the speed limit was 30 km/h, but it would not be practical.
The sign says that you are not allowed to park after the pedestrian crossing. Also, you are not allowed to stop or park before the pedestrian crossing due to the 10 meter rule.
Parking means that the vehicle, with or without the driver, has been stationed for a reason other than:
No parking at the red arrow without a permit (allowed to pick up passengers).
It is normally said that the numbers within parentheses “are applicable on Saturdays”. This is nearly always the case. However, it would be more correct to say that the numbers within the parentheses are applicable on the day before a Sunday or public holiday. If New Year’s Day (public holiday) falls on a Wednesday, the day before (i.e. Tuesday) is considered a Saturday, as it is the day before a Sunday or public holiday.
Please note: In Swedish traffic law, a normal week has 6 weekdays: Monday–Saturday.
If it does not hinder a bus, you may stop to drop off and pick up passengers. You are never allowed to stop for loading and unloading.
