All-way stop control and signalized intersections Drivers at intersections with all-way stop control or traffic signals need the least sight distance. Bike boxes are designated areas on the approach to a signalized intersection consisting of an advanced stop line and bike symbols.
05 A dotted line used as a lane line at interchanges should consist of 3-foot line segments.
Stop lines at intersections are designed to. Any object within the sight triangle high enough above the elevation of the adjacent. 41 An inexpensive intervention at signal-controlled intersections involves repositioning of stop lines further back from crosswalks. It is of equal importance that pedestrians be able to view and react to potential conflicts with vehicles.
04 A dotted line for line extensions or taper areas at an intersection shall consist of 2-foot line segments and 4-foot gaps. As dwell time is reduced optimal spacing will narrow. Where a bicycle intersection approach is provided in a similar manner with a dedicated lane and a right-turn pocket to the right.
Where a right-turnqueue jump with signal priority is not practical such as locations with long right-turn queues. A stop line is a single white line painted across the travel lane of a roadway that signals where to stop your car before reaching a crosswalk. Intersection or stopped at the intersection to observe pedestrians and cyclists and carry out whatever maneuvers may be required to negotiate the intersection.
At all-way stops drivers need to be able to see vehicles stopped at the other lanes that they are intersecting with. Barriers and fences which are designed to channel pedestrians to safe crossing areas and prevent them from running into traffic have been found to reduce midblock crossings39 and substantially decrease crash rates41 An inexpensive intervention at signal-controlled intersections involves repositioning of stop lines further back from crosswalks. Bike boxes should be primarily considered to mitigate conflicts between through bicyclists and right-turning motorists and to reduce conflicts between motorists and bicyclists at the beginning of the green signal phase.
Section 21453 of the California Vehicle Code requires a vehicle when facing a circular red. The stop lines or bar only apply to moving vehicles and do not define a crosswalk. If no limit line or crosswalk is marked on the street stop before entering an intersection at that spot.
At signals drivers approaching the intersections need to see the signal lights. A dotted line used for lane drop markings at intersections shall consist of 3-foot line segments and 9-foot gaps. 951 Widths for Turning Roadways at Intersections The pavement and roadway widths of turning roadways at intersections are governed by the volumes of turning traffic and the types of vehicles to be accommodated and may be designed for one-way or two-way operation depending on the geometric pattern of the intersection.
It creates a buffer zone between the stop line and crosswalk so pedestrians can safely cross the street. Barriers and fences which are designed to channel pedestrians to safe crossing areas and prevent them from running into traffic have been found to reduce midblock crossings 39 and substantially decrease crash rates. Signalized intersections with transit operating in a curbside or offset lane.
1 That part of a roadway at an intersection included within the connections of the lateral lines of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the highway measured from the curbs or in the absence of curbs from the edges of the traversable roadway. As the speed of the feeder mode is increased optimal spacing will widen. Although analytical studies to determine optimal stop spacing provide some useful guidelines stops must ultimately be sited to serve major trip generators and attractors in the service area.
