Waiting on Bus lane

Bericht door pdesai84 » 11 jan 2017, 23:04

Hi,

In chapter 2 (page 20) and in chapter 22 (page 134), it is specified as:

A car is not allowed to:
- park
- or ride on bus lane

It doesn't say that you can not wait there. Does it means you can wait on bus lane ?

On the contrary, in chapter 25 (page 152) it is specified as:
You are not allowed to wait or park on bus lane.

Now the confusion is which one is correct ?
Are you allowed to wait or not on the bus lane ?

The similar confusion is in the exercise as well:
Question 7596:
Are you allowed to wait on a bus lane to let someone out of the car ? As per portal ans is YES

Question 8523:
What is the most correct answer ? On the bus lane you...
As per the portal ans is: are not allowed to wait or park.

Can anyone please clear this confusion ?
Many thanks.

This is what the law says:
It's not allowed to park or to ride on the bus lane.

According to some traffic experts, you can also not wait on a bus lane, since you are not allowed to drive on it.
Some traffic experts have another opinion: it is not prohibited by law, so it's allowed.
Because during the exam the latter opinion is followed, we also do it in this course.
On the contrary, in chapter 25 (page 152) it is specified as:
You are not allowed to wait or park on bus lane.
I suppose you use an older book.
It has to be: You are not allowed to park on a bus lane.

QUESTION 7596: So the answer is YES.
QUESTION 8523:
I have adjusted the question.
The correct answer is: B. ... you are not allowed to drive or to park.

I bought this book last month from one of the driving school. They gave me 3rd edition: 13th May 2016.
I don't know if new book has arrived very recently or they might be still distributing an older book.

Anyhow, thank you so much for this clarification.
