Do I have to STOP at SLIP Lane or I can drive out slowly?

While it is not MANDATORY to STOP at a Slip Lane, It is highly recommended that as a learner you proceed slowly and stop for a second before merging to the left and do a head check to make sure there is no confilicting traffic which may casue danger to you and other road user. 

An experienced driver may proceed slowly without stopping at the slip lane, once they are very sure that there is no pedestrian and any vehicle that will affect their turn.​

Where and Whom I'm required to Give Way?

  • To Pedestrians on the Marked Foot Crossing.

  • Any vehicle travelling straight from the road to your right.

  • Any vehicle making a U turn from the road next to you.

  • Any vehicle turning right from the oncoming road from intersection.

Important to Remember
