Common theory questions

You are waiting a red light. What should you do if a police officer signals for you to keep driving?

If you are waiting a red light and police officer signals for you to keep driving, you should keep driving as a police officer's signal has the highest priority.

If you are driving and encounter several instructions at the same time, the following order of priority applies:

  1. Police officer's signal
  2. Traffic signals (light and sound signals)
  3. Road signs
  4. General traffic rules (for example the priority to the right-rule)

It is called "police officer's signal", but the following occupational groups also have the authority to direct traffic:

  • Vehicle inspectors
  • Escorts for wide, long and heavy loads
  • Customs officials
  • Traffic wardens (parking officers)
  • Road workers with a red flag
  • Other persons appointed by an authority to direct traffic
