Red zone line marking is a proven method of ensuring that roads in said zones are free from stopped vehicles, improving the flow of traffic, increasing efficiency and lowering traffic build-up.
There are many uses for red zones and various types:
• Double red lines mean that vehicles may not stop at any time.
• A single red line has its exceptions and vehicles may stop – typically between an allotted time or day. For example; between 10 am – 4 pm and 7 pm – 7 am Monday to Friday.
If on your travels, you stumble upon a dashed red lined bay, this space may be reserved for loading only. For instance, these spaces may be found outside shops or stores. It might be worth a mention that if found not adhering to these rules, there are likely to be fines involved.
However, there are a few instances where stopping is allowed in a red zone:
• To prevent an accident occurring.
• When directed to do so by a police officer.
• To allow emergency vehicles to pass.
• If your vehicle has broken down.
While appearing on the roads in most cities around the country red zone line marking also can be found around our hospitals – making sure that people don’t block the essential routes for emergency vehicles.
