Regulations relating to stopping

When you are driving you may not necessarily think much about stopping and simply stop automatically when a light is on red. But infact knowing when you should stop on the road is very important for your own safety, that of your passengers, and other road users too.

There are various occasions on which you must stop. Before reading on, see how many situations in which you must stop you can think of.

Now that you've come up with your list, let's see how many of these you managed to get:

- At a red, amber or red and amber traffic light
- At stop lines by a stop sign
- When there is a stop children sign at a school crossing
- when a member of the police or a traffic warden instructs you to do so
- At a zebra crossing to give way to pedestrians
- At a pelican crossing when the light is red or flashing amber and pedestrians are crossing
- When there are flashing red lights on a motorway or level crossing
- If you are involved in an accident

It is very important that you understand the reasons why you must stop on each of these occasions, and whilst if you observe some drivers you sadly might think that an amber traffic light means speed up, that most certainly is not the case. Always err on the side of caution and only don't stop at the amber if it is unsafe for you to do so, otherwise do always slow down and stop.
