3.3.4.1. Road signs: examples

Example 1. Right turn at intersection forbidden

City of Moscow. Traffic along Lomonosovsky Ave. moving towards the intersection with Leninsky Ave. (green arrow on drawing):



Note. This example shows one of several traffic signs at a complicated intersection.

The red arrows on the drawing point to signs before the intersection that indicate the direction traffic must follow and restrict right turns:



You can enter a traffic sign on the map to indicate that right turns at the intersection are forbidden:



Example 2. Left turn at intersection forbidden

City of Moscow. Traffic along Udaltsova St. moving towards the intersection with Vernadsky Ave. (green arrow on drawing):



The red arrow in the drawing points to signs that show the mandatory traffic directions and forbid left turns:



You can enter a traffic sign on the map to indicate that left turns at the intersection are forbidden (see drawing):



Example 3. U-turns forbidden

City of Moscow. Traffic along Bolshoy Dorogomilovsky St. moving towards the intersection with Second Bryansky Ln. (green arrow on drawing):



At this intersection, you can go straight or turn left, but you can not make a u-turn:



You can enter traffic signs on the map to indicate that u-turns are forbidden. Select the two road sections after the intersection that are affected by this traffic instruction (see green arrows). Please note: if only one section were selected, it would mean that only left turns were forbidden, which is not the case here.



Example 4. U-turns forbidden (permitted traffic directions indicated)

City of Moscow. Traffic along Vavilova St. moving towards the intersection with Lomonosovsky Ave. and Nakhimovsky Ave. (green arrow on drawing):



The green arrows in the drawing point to signs that show the mandatory traffic directions and forbid left turns:



You can enter a traffic sign on the map to reflect this (see drawing):



Example 5. Forbidden turns at road forks and intersections with exit ramps

Example 5.1. Road fork

City of Moscow. Traffic along Sevastopolsky Ave. moving towards the intersection with Perekopsky St. (green arrow on drawing):



Perekopskaya St. forms exit ramps as it approaches the intersection, which is why u-turns are prohibited:



You can enter a traffic sign on the map to reflect this, as shown in the drawing. Here, u-turns are forbidden when the road splits to form exit lanes:



Example 5.2

Three two-line roads intersect at a fork in the line:

This is mapped using the following road signs (red arrows mark the area where turns/u-turns are forbidden at intersections of central roads):

Example 5.3. Intersection of road with exit ramps

Intersection of road with exit ramps:

This is mapped using the following road signs (red arrows mark the area where turns are forbidden:

Example 5.4

Three one-line roads intersect at a fork in the line:

This is mapped using the following road signs (red arrows mark the area where turns are forbidden):

Example 6. Left turns forbidden when u-turns are allowed

City of Moscow. Traffic along Rusakovskaya St. moving towards the intersection with Malenkovskaya St. (green arrow on drawing):



At this intersection, you can make a u-turn, but you can not turn left (for commercial vehicles):



You can enter traffic signs on the map to indicate that u-turns are forbidden for commercial vehicles. Select the two road sections after the intersection that are affected by this traffic instruction. If we only restrict the first road section after the point, we end up forbidding all turns there, including u-turns:



Example 7. Legal u-turn at break in solid line

City of Moscow. Traffic along Glavmosstroya St. at break in a solid line:

Example 8. Legal u-turn (not prohibited)

At the intersection of a road drawn using one line that has no signs forbidding u-turns, you should enter four legal u-turn road signs:

Note.

You can make a u-turn at all intersections where u-turns and () left turns () are not forbidden and the signs that indicate traffic directions by lane do not forbid left turns or u-turns (, , ).

U-turns at intersections involving one-way streets may also be forbidden.

Example 9. Left turn forbidden for bicyclists in accordance with traffic laws

Bicyclists are forbidden from turning left and making u-turns on roads with tram lines in the middle of the road, and on roads that have more than one lane for traffic going in that direction.

That's why you must add a no left turn warning for bicyclists at intersections with a road containing a tram line.
