Motorways with three or more driving lanes

Bus drivers, trucks of maximum allowed gross weight above of 3,5 tons or a combination of vehicles more than 7m of length (i.e. passenger cars towing house trailers), should be driving only in the two last lanes to the right of a motorway.

  1. Special precautions.
    It is dangerous to drive on the motorway with tires not properly inflated. Before starting a long-distance journey on the motorway, you need to increase the pressure (200-300g) of your tires compared with the normal tire pressure. That way you will avoid the tires being overheated, which would increase the risk of rupture (puncture). Remember to lift your foot from the accelerator from time to time. Such a small slowdown contributes to the cooling and lubrication of the motor and will exceed its longevity. Consult the indicators and the luminous indications of the dashboard. Observe the fuel level often. The fuel consumption is increasing according to the speed and the gas stations are at large distance the one from the other, often they are more than tens of kilometers. (pict. 9.13).
  2. The forbidden maneuvers:
    • Backwards.
      It is prohibited to move backwards on the motorway (including the emergency lane, in which driving is forbidden). If you accidently pass the point where you should have turned to get off the motorway, you have to continue driving up to the next junction, where you will be able to turn and then follow any direction you want.
    • The U-turn (180°).
      It is strictly forbidden to make a U-turn on the motorway.
      Each road has a single direction. A central barrier is separating these roads. In general, this barrier is unapproachable, except for certain passages that are made for service and emergency vehicles only.
      Do not ever use these passages. Even though there is no central barrier it is still prohibited to make a U-turn on these roads. It is also prohibited to cross the striped areas of the road and to park there.
