Highway Safety Rules


  1. Parking, stopping, loading or unloading
    A vehicle may not be stopped, left standing, parked, loaded or unloaded on an acceleration or deceleration lane, or on the adjacent shoulder.

  2. Emergencies and right-turn acceleration and deceleration lanes
    In case of emergency only, parking, stopping, standing, loading or unloading of a vehicle is permitted on the shoulder to the right of the travel lanes facing with the direction of travel when the wheels of the vehicle and the projecting parts of the body or load are safely off and to the right of the travel lanes.

  3. Emergencies and left-turn acceleration and deceleration lanes
    In case of emergency only, parking, stopping, standing, loading or unloading of a vehicle is permitted on the shoulder to the left of the travel lanes facing with the direction of travel when the wheels of the vehicle and the projecting parts of the body or load are safely off and to the left of the travel lanes.

  4. Passing or general travel
    Motor vehicle operators should NEVER use the acceleration and deceleration lanes as general travel lanes or for passing other vehicles.

  5. Allow vehicles to safely merge
    Be courteous to vehicles entering the highway and allow them to merge.

    If you observe a vehicle using the left-turn median acceleration lane, move to the right lane, if you can do so safely and without slowing the traffic flow, to allow the vehicle to safely merge into the mainline of traffic.

    If you observe a vehicle using the right-turn acceleration lane, move to the left lane, if you can do so safely and without slowing the traffic flow, to allow the vehicle to safely merge into the mainline of traffic.
