Traffic rules - 1990. The RVV RVV = Traffic Rules and Signs knows in Article 1 definitions to tell us what, where, when and how to judge in traffic certain matters. In this article I give alphabetically definitions again, plus things you possible to deal with the daily traffic you receive or benefit can join.


Vehicles that are propelled by a vehicle or obviously intended to be interpreted as advanced, as well as semi-trailers.
Here you have to think more broadly than what we include eg means a trailer or caravan. Drag another car with the car, then the car towed seen as partisan. Link your trailer behind another trailer or not. This is not intended to propel a trailer.


Motor vehicle designed and intended to be used for ambulance as defined in the Ambulance Act. Keep in traffic in particular to an ambulance that carries optical and noise protection signals; service as required space. Trade calmly, do not panic and if necessary make some more speed when there is no space to catch up to the ambulance or space for yourself to make room in the shoulder, the side of the road, etc.


Motor vehicle, designed to carry more than eight persons, including the driver did not understand.
Important when participating in traffic ?? especially in built compass is you have to let go for a bus like this -by means of declaring with the turn signal has indicated the stop wanting to drive away. It does not matter if it's a local ?? bekende- bus company or a touring carbedrijf whose bus is involved. They are both buses! This rule was drawn up because you can not see on the outside of the bus or the bus maintains a so-called liner service or instance is hired by a shortage of material for a short time.


Road sign indicated by G1 in Annex 1; along motorways, car parks, petrol stations and bus stop locations are not part of the motorway from.
Could this be the case, then you could theoretically 120 km. per hour and drive in such situations.
It is also true that for pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, disabled vehicles, etc. would not be possible on / to be within such a situation and move on, because this must not be situated on a motorway. For them, of course laid out a different approach road. A motorway is intended for motor vehicles which can quickly and may then drive 60 kilometers per hour.


Road, designated by sign G3 of Annex I; off-motorway car parks, petrol stations and bus stop locations are not part of the motorway from
The speed limit on the motorway is 100 kilometers. per hour and these roads may be driven only by drivers of motor vehicles that a speed limit of 50 km. per hour and allowed to drive.

    I'm trying to figure out what the rules are for parking in a parking space where the WVW 1994 says apply is.RVV 1990: ... is under art.1 parking bay or parking lane means a hardening situated along the lane intended for stationary or parked voertuigen.WVW 1994 says art.1 c.motorrijtuigen: all cars ... art.1.d. trailer: Vehicle ... stands on the site Vehicles Bicycles, disabled vehicles, motor vehicles, trams and wagens.Dus both on the road as at rails.Mijn question is whether a trailer or a caravan vehicle is in that capacity that may be parked in a parking bay where the WVW 1994 apply to?


    I am a radio TV case to stand with my car in a place reserved for loading and unloading because I have a 42 "TV flat screen had to load that I had ordered. I have opened my trunk and emergency lights. In the shop proved the right screen would not be in stock. I have paid a usb stick and was within seven minutes back to my car where a parking attendant I was fining. He said that there were a small bag not as loading and unloading and bekeurde through. Who can help me by telling that this is handled correctly or not, thank you.


    Can anyone help me? I recently appealed a fine for parking in a handicapped spot without disability card. But I stood along the road and not in a handicapped spot. If beslising I received the following: "The public prosecutor finds that there was in this case of parking within the meaning of article in the regulations traffic rules and traffic signs 1990." After reading dez site, I feel that this is totally no sense. Who can help me by telling that this is handled correctly or not, thank you.

    I'm with the following question: is a bus capable of transporting no more than eight persons among passenger car or commercial vehicle?


    Dear Julia, I can imagine that there is some confusion, but they are two different issues, namely: The RVV talking about motorvoertuigen.Alle motorized vehicles except mopeds, scooters, mopeds mobiles disabled vehicles, destined to be different than along rails voortbewogen.Treinen and trams should therefore not bij.Waar the traffic rules so you have to deal especially with the RVV. Imagine what each meant above vehicle may or may not speak in the verkeer.De WVW intended motorrijtuigen.Alle on vehicles other than to be moved along rails, solely or partly by a mechanical force, or the vehicle itself present than or by electric traction with power supply elders.Treinen and trams should also not there, but an example trollybus wel.Het WVW is basically about all vehicles which are directly or indirectly driven by a motor. This is much more common than the engine-run vehicles in the RVV.Het difference between the two is mostly legal. The WVW for-all important for the legislature to determine which vehicle that can drive and whether a vehicle meets the requirements, illegal etc. You have it in your question so on the Road Traffic Act, but in practice on the road you have to maken.Ik with RVV and so on motor vehicles do not understand what to do with 'tunnen character "mean? I hope this story a little less obscure maakt.Groeten, Micho Est
