What to do with keep clear markings

Keep clear markings are quite straightforward to understand, although amazingly some people either ignore them or do not appear to understand what they mean!

You will often seen keep clear markings on the road in order to remind you to keep a junction clear, although you should of course never block a side road anyway.

Sometimes if there is a house or other turning at a busy point like by traffic lights there will be keep clear markings by that turning too - wherever traffic is likely to be busy and so the entry or exit to a building or road could become blocked you will often see a keep clear set of markings.

Sometimes the keep clear is literally the words written in paint, whilst for others there may be the words in yellow together with an explanation as to why - for instance "school - keep clear" and depending on the length of the area to be kept clear there may be yellow zigzag markins either side of the wording extending for the length of the keep clear zone. This means if you are in traffic that is crawling you should wait behind the keep clear zone then only when the other side of it is clear should you move across it to join that end of the queue.
