Do not Block Intersection or Emergency Vehicle Entrance (Road Markings)

(Last Updated On: January 11, 2017)

What’s up with this nice design on the road?

This warns drivers not to stop on these lines; it means DO NOT BLOCK the intersection/driveway. Usually this is found at the entrances to emergency vehicle driveways, although you should avoid blocking any intersection. If there is backed up traffic and/or a red light, stop in front of the lines, or behind them, but not on top of them.

Many moons ago, Carmen became an ICBC-approved driving instructor at the age of 22 in North Vancouver, and has spent many years working with new and experienced drivers around the lower mainland. She can be found reading the Motor Vehicle Act for fun while receiving strange looks from others. May the quest for great driving continue!
