Going abroad - Germany

Forbidden lane

Lanes for pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and farm vehicles

The emergency lane may not be used except where this is expressly permitted (e.g. by road sign 223.1).

A red light in the shape of a cross means that the lane may not be used (or stopped in)

Specific lanes reserved for buses and coaches in regular service are marked by road sign 245.

Forbidden lanes are indicated by road signs – e.g. 600, 605, 610, 615 and 616.
