Give way signs


 

Give way signs are normally set up immediately by the location where, or from where, the specified give way rule applies.


B 11 Absolute duty to give way

The sign indicates that motorists driving into or across a road have a duty to give way to the moving traffic from both sides (absolute duty to give way). The sign is normally used in connection with S 11 Give Way line.

In combination with the plates, U 1 and UB 11.1, below the signs, the sign is used for warning of B 11 and B 13, respectively. Below B 11, the D 12 Mandatory traffic direction in a roundabout sign, can be set up.


B 13 Stop

The sign indicates that motorists have absolute duty to give way and must stop before driving into a junction or before driving over a railway track. In a junction, cyclists and drivers of small mopeds which legally use the cycle track can, however, turn to the right down the cycle track along the intersecting road’s right side without stopping, if this can be done without inconvenience to other users. For railway tracks, the sign is set up below A 74 Level crossing sign. The sign is normally used in connection with S 13 Stop line, see Section 55.


B 15 Merging

The sign indicates that traffic lines are merging together so that, with mutual consideration, motorists must ease the merging of the traffic flow, see the Road Traffic Act, Section 18, items 3 and 4. The sign is used especially with the merging of motorway traffic lanes and with approach lanes.


B 16 Main road

The sign indicates that traffic from side roads have absolute duty to give way unless signs B 11, B 13 or B 15 are set up on the main road. The sign also indicates that parking on the roadway is prohibited outside of a dense built-up area, see the Road Traffic Act, Section 29, item 3, no. 3. With the plate, UC 60.6 No parking on verge, mentioned in Section 17 below the sign, it can be indicated that no parking is permitted on the verge.


B 17 End of main road

End of main road.


B 18 Give way to oncoming traffic

The sign indicates that motorists may only drive onto the stretch of road when they can pass it without forcing oncoming traffic to stop.


B 19 Oncoming traffic must give way

Oncoming traffic must give way.
