1 POLITIE LEUVEN GUIDE FOR CYCLING IN BELGIUM (LEUVEN) FOREWORD: 1

2 So you have decided to come and study in Leuven. The best way to get around in Leuven is by using a bicycle. However if you re not used at cycling in a city and you don t know the Belgian Highway Code it can be a bit tricky and confusing. This is where this CD-ROM wants to help and guide you. We ll give you an explanation on the Belgian Highway Code and we ll discuss a few road situations which are specific for Leuven. Cyclists are a very vulnerable group of road users. When they have a road accident involving cars the toll cyclist have to pay is most of the time very high. Strangely the fault often lies with the cyclist himself: cycling in the wrong direction, neglecting to stop for a red traffic light, not giving way to other traffic users, driving with a bicycle which isn t technical in order, The police in Leuven does regular controls during the year specifying on these topics. These controls are preventive and repressive so be aware! Pay special attention to the chapters about the fines (p.74), the regular examples I give on the roads of Leuven and the summary of attention points for cyclists (p.67). I hope you have an interesting and instructive time with this course and I wish you save driving in the future. Katrien Marginet Police-Inspector Studentcop. 2

5 2. THE BELGIAN HIGHWAY CODE Road traffic is a sort of extended social activity with many different participants: car drivers, motor cyclists, bicycle drivers, pedestrians, Imagine what would happen if they all drove or walked at random, according to their own ideas and impulses, it would be rather chaotic. In order to allow traffic to flow smoothly and safely the legislators have set up the Highway Code or traffic regulations. They are a wide range of rules and regulations that are binding for all road users. This way we know what we should be doing and what to expect from others When is it applicable? The Highway Code is applicable on all public highways and certain restrictions in it apply to other public places. * The public highway (or public road): The public highway (or public road) consists of all public ways, which include all streets, roads, cycle tracks, footpaths, verges, squares, etc. open to the public. The Highway Code applies to all users of the public highway: pedestrians, car drivers, cyclists, 5

6 - Some examples of a public road: Street Tunnel Path Roundabout * Other public places: As well as the public highways there are other places where we find traffic: grounds or private enterprises or institutions open to a public that is sometimes, but not always, limited: parking facilities at hospitals, a petrol station, Despite of the fact that they are not a public highway certain restrictions from the Highway Code apply e.g. failing to stop after an accident, alcohol excess. 6

7 - Some examples of a public place: Petrol station Skip yard Parking restaurant Parking hospital These are places were we have to be using a vehicle if we really need something at that place otherwise we wouldn t be there. - Exception: Like it always is with rules there has to be an exception. Court has decided that the parking space of a supermarket is a public highway. 7

8 Parking supermarket * Non-public spaces: A non-public or private place is protected as such through law. The Highway Code is not applicable. These are places were you can t just go to. You need a permit to be there. Like a parking ticket in a private parking or the parking of a factory which is only accessible for people who work there and deliverers. Private pay parking Factory 2.2. Authorized persons Definition An authorized person in this context is someone having the authority to control the traffic and ensure that the regulations are respected. In practice you will mainly come across the following types of authorized persons : police 8

9 customs officials military police agents acting for a public transport body The orders / signals The word order means: an instruction that must be obeyed. In the frame work of traffic regulations an order can only be given by an authorized person. The order can also be given by a policeperson who is not in uniform in that case the person must make himself or herself known as such by showing an official police card. The well-known policeman s whistle is not an order but simply a way of attracting attention. The order will follow the whistle and is usually a signal. * The arm is raised vertically: All road users, including pedestrians, coming from all directions must stop; those still on the crossroad should leave it immediately. * Arm(s) raised horizontally: 9

10 Stop signal for all road users approaching from in front of or behind the outstretched arm(s). The outstretched arm indicates a barrier to these and at the same time shows the direction traffic may still follow. * Other signs and signals giving an order: - By using a red torch an authorized person can signal you to stop. - A STOP sign, lit up on the illuminated panel found on some police vehicles is also an order to stop. - Along with the afore-mentioned signals there are also the well known gestures such as the circular movement of the forearm (Drive on!) or the up and down movement of the arm (Slow down!) - Finally an officer can also give you a spoken order.!!!!!!! ATTENTION: FAILURE TO OBEY AN ORDER FROM AN AUTHORISED PERSON IS A SERIOUS TRAFFIC OFFENCE!!!!!! 10

11 Other persons who can control traffic Some people may, during an event, be in a limited capacity responsible for the control of traffic. They can not give orders only indications, which you must respect. They have to use a traffic signs C3 which has to be held up high to stop traffic. They can only operate at crossroads were there are no traffic lights. Traffic sign C3 * Officials at cycle races and non-motorized sports events. They wear a black-yellow red armband with the word signalman (signaalgever-signaleur) on it and hold up traffic using a C3 sign. You will come across them on the circuit of a cycle/ running / foot race. * Road captains of (motor) cycle tours. Groups of more than 50 (motor) cyclists must and groups of 15 to 50 may be accompanied by at least 2 road captains. They must be at least 21 years old and wear a black-yellow red armband with the word road captain (wegkapitein or captaine de route) on it. 11

12 * School crossing supervisors. In the neighborhood of schools adults may be given the status of supervisor to help the children cross safely; they may hold up traffic using a C3 sign. They wear a black-yellow red armband with the name of the local municipality. They are empowered by the mayor after following theoretical and practical training. A guide or supervisor may also accompany groups of elderly or disabled people in order to allow them to move around as a group in safety. In Leuven you will certainly come across them around the hours that school begins or ends, so be careful. As a cyclist you also have to stop when they hold up their C3 sign Traffic signals The traffic signs Important note! : For this chapter I will only give the most relevant traffic signs for cyclists if not these instructions would become too complicated. Again, if you want more information you can contact me for a detailed summary of all the traffic signs. 12

13 Beware: sometimes it can get a bit complicated!!! The traffic signs are divided into six categories: 1. Warning signs: A 2. Traffic signs regulating priority: B 3. Prohibitive order signs: C 4. Signs giving positive instructions: D 5. Traffic signs regulating waiting and parking: E 6. Information signs : F A plate, a small sign attached under the traffic sign itself, can add to the sign s message, giving details of stipulations and limitations. Example: 13

14 Uitgezonderd means except for so this traffic sign means: no entry for vehicular traffic except for cyclist, they can enter this street Warning signs: These signs warn you of road hazards. They are placed +/- 150 meters from the danger point, either to the right of or above the road. These are some of the signs you re most likely to come across while cycling through Leuven. Dangerous bend to the left. Dangerous bend to the right. A1a A1b A1c Two or more dangerous bends, the first to the left A1d Two or more dangerous bends, the first to the right Steep hill downwards Steep hill upwards A3 A5 A7a Road narrows on both sides A7b Road narrows on the left A7c Road narrows on the right A23 Children present (frequent near schools!!!!) A14 Raised road surface -plateau A15 Danger of slipery road From snow or ice plate Pedestrian crossing Road works A21 A31 A25 Crossing for bicycles and mopeds or a place where a cycle track emerges onto a road A33 Traffic light signals 14

15 A51 Danger! Exact danger specified by plate A39 Two way traffic straight ahead following a part of the road with one way traffic Level crossing with gate or barrier Level crossing without gate or barrier. A41 A The traffic signs regulating priority These signs are displayed on the right hand side of the road and sometimes repeated on the left-hand side or displayed above a lane. On an additional plate a thick white line can indicate the priority through road. B1 You must give way! B3 200 meters advance warning of a B1 traffic sign B5 You must stop and give way B7 150 meters advance warning of a B5 stop sign B9 You are driving on a priority through road B11 End of priority through road. B13 Traffic sign giving advance warning of a B11 sign at the distance show non the plate B15 You have right of way; the thin horizontal line can be modified to show more clearly the angle of the intersecting road B17 Crossroads with priority to the right B19 Narrow passage; you must give way to approaching traffic 15

16 B21 Narrow passage you have right of way over approaching traffic * On B1, B5 and B17 traffic signs there may be a M9 or M 10 to show that cyclists and mopeds may be approaching from either direction of the road you are about to cross. * On B1 and B5 traffic signs an additional M8 plate can indicate that only cyclists and mopeds must give way or stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT!!!!!! : In case there is no sign regulating priority at a crossroad, the rule of priority for people coming from the right apply. 16

17 * Examples: foto 1. In this case you have priority over the drivers coming from the drivers coming from your left. foto 2. You have to give priority to the drivers coming from your right at the next crossroad. 17

18 foto 3. There are no signs regulating priority so you have to give priority to the drivers coming from your right hand side but you have priority over the drivers coming from your left. 4. This cyclist is driving on a priority through road (the cycle track at Geldenaaksevest, Leuven). Always be careful though and make sure that the drivers coming from the side roads have seen you coming The prohibitive signs These signs stand to the right or above the road. Sometimes you are given (repeated advance warning by an identical sign with a plate indicating the distance still to go. 18

19 These are some of the most important prohibitive signs you will come across. No entry for vehicular traffic No entry in either direction for all vehicles C1 C3 C5 No entry for drivers of all vehicles having more than two wheels and motor cycles with a side car. (so you can enter with your bike!) C7 No entry for motor cycles (so you can enter with your bike!) No entry for mopeds (so you can enter with your bike!) No entry for cyclists. C9 C11 No pedestrian After this sign no U turns until the next junction C19 C33 C31a C31b No right turn at the following junction No left turn at the following junction Until the next junction you may not exceed the indicated speed End of the C43 restriction C43 C45 * IMPORTANT: C1, C3 and C31 traffic signs may have an additional M2 plate indicating that the restriction in question does not apply to cyclists. Remember UITGEZONDERD means EXCEPT FOR. 19

20 * Examples on the roads of Leuven: 1. You can make a left turn here because there is a uitgezonderd plate. (H. Consciencestraat near A. Vesaliusstraat) 20

21 2. No entry for vehicular traffic BUT this restriction does not apply to cyclists. You can enter. (J.Stasstraat) 3. No vehicular traffic is allowed not even cyclists! (Tiensestraat) 21

22 4. No entry in either direction for all vehicles except for cyclists. (Ladeuzeplein) Signs giving positive instructions These signs are placed where they are most easily seen. You may have an advance warning, this is the same sign but with a plate indicating the distance. You must follow the instructions on these signs. You must drive straight ahead D1a You must go to the left D1b 22

23 You must turn to the left D1e You must follow one or the other of the directions indicated D3 Roundabout circulation, that is anti-clockwise D5 Cycle track, obligatory for cyclists and class A mopeds D7 Segregated route, on the one side for pedestrians on the other for cyclists and class A mopeds D9 This side of the road is reserved for pedestrians and cyclists D10 Obligatory footpath D11 Obligatory track for horse riders D13 * IMPORTANT: D1, C3 and C31 traffic signs may have an additional M2 plate indicating that the restriction in question does not apply to cyclists. Remember UITGEZONDERD means EXCEPT FOR. 23

24 * Examples on the roads of Leuven: 24

25 1. This is an obligatory cycle track (the cycle track at Geldenaaksevest, Leuven) 2. Roundabout circulation, that is anti-clockwise (Brabançonnestraat) Traffic signs regulating waiting and parking Most of the time these signs only apply to motorvehicles but sometimes they can also be used for cyclists. For example: E1 No parking This sign is often used when there are some festivities in Leuven. In that case you can not park your bicycle in some places for safety reasons. You will see the following sign with a plate to precise the date of the parking prohibition. 25

26 Special parking places for cycles are sometimes indicated with the following sign. E9a with M1 If mopeds are also allowed to park at that place you will see the following plate. E9a with M8 * Examples on the roads of Leuven: 26

27 The sign is placed in a cycle rack which means it applies to this rack. The text on the plate says: Verboden fietsen te stallen vanaf zondag 06/08/2006 om 06u.00. Which means: Prohibited to park cycles starting from Sunday 06/08/06 at 06 a.m. 27

28 This sign indicates that there is a parking space for cycles. (Kinepolis cinema theatre at Bondgenotenlaan) Information signs Again I will give you here the most relevant signs for cyclist because there is a wide range of information signs. F1a Start of a built up area F1b 28

29 F3a End of a built up area F3b F5 Start of a motorway. YOU CAN NOT CYCLE HERE!!!!!!!!! End of a motorway F7 F9 Start of express road. YOU CAN NOT CYCLE HERE!!!!!!!!! F11 End of express road F14 Warning of an advance cycle lane. You will find this in front of traffic lights. These means you can wait in front of the cars in the designated area. One way traffic F19 F29 Direction sign with or without distance in km F33c F34a F34b.1 Places of interest: monument, recreation park Direction sign to public buildings, stations, police, fire station Advisory routes for specific categories of road users, e.g.; cyclists 29

30 F34b.2 F34c.1 F34c.2 Recommended route for particular road users No trough road F45 End of road works F47 Pedestrian crossing F49 Crossing for cyclists and mopeds F50 Watch out for cyclist as you turn. The cyclist may be replaced by a pedestrian sign in that case you have to watch out for pedestrians as you turn F50bis Underground crossing for pedestrians F51 hospital F53 30

31 First aid post F55 Telephone,petrol station,hotel/motel,restarant, drinking facilities, camping site,caravan site,youth hostel, tourist information Raised road surface-plateau F87 F99a F101a Begin and end of a road/ path for the use of pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. It may be modified according to the categories permitted. F101b F99b Begin and end of a segregated road/path for the use of pedestrians and cyclists. It may be modified according to the categories permitted. Start of a pedestrian zone. Very important in Leuven. When you see this sign you can cycle. There are exceptions. We will explain this later. F103 End of a pedestrian zone F105!!!! There are some other information signs important for cyclist!!!!: * F19 + M4 31

32 If you see this sign it means that there is one-way traffic but the additional plate indicates cyclists may ride in both directions. * F19 + M 5 Same here but mopeds of class A are also allowed to drive both ways * Examples on the roads of Leuven: foto One-way traffic but the additional plate indicates cyclists may ride in both directions (Vlamingenstraat). 32

33 Start of express road so you can not cycle here. There is a cycle track next to it (Tiensevest at the tunnel). No through road except for cyclists and mopeds. 33

34 Pedestrian zone the Dutch says: Fiets toegestaan tussen 19 en 11u which means: Cycling (fiets) allowed (toegestaan) between (tussen) 7 p.m. (19) and (en) 11 a.m. (11) hours (u.). Grote Markt: Pedestrian zone cycling is always allowed. (if you look close you see the cycle sign underneath the blue pedestrian sign) 34

35 !!!!! SOME PLACES OF ATTENTION IN LEUVEN!!!!! Tiensestraat: you can not enter the Tiensestraat coming from the direction of the Tiensepoort, not even cycling. 35

36 This traffic sign is often used when there are festivities in Leuven in the city centre near the Grote Markt. This means you can t enter with your bike or moped. The plate also says stalling verboden which means parking prohibited.!!!!!!! PEDESTRIAN ZONES!!!!!! The pedestrian zones in Leuven can get a bit confusing sometimes especially if you don t understand the Dutch on it. Some examples to help you understand: You will find this traffic sign in the neighborhood of the Oude Markt, Mechelsestraat and Diestsestraat. It means it is a pedestrian zone. The Dutch says: Uitgezonderd laden en lossen van 6u. tot 11u. this is for cars and means they can enter to load or deliver goods between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. 36

37 Then you see the cycle sign, underneath is written tussen 19u. en 11u. So you can cycle here between 7 p.m. and 11 a.m. Diesestraat, the same as the one above. This sign is used in the Naamsestraat near Grote Markt, Parijsstraat and Brusselsestraat. This means you can cycle here. If there is nothing written underneath the cycle sign there are no exceptions to be noted. 37

38 There is no cycle sign here on this traffic sign so you can not cycle here, this is only a pedestrian zone. Remember this is at the Muntstraat behind the city hall. A lot of Belgian cyclist drive through here do not follow there BAD example. This is the traffic sign to indicate the end of the pedestrian zone. 38

39 Some funny situations (THESE ARE NOT GOOD EXAMPLES!!!): EE 39

40 The traffic lights Tricolour circular traffic lights Only the lights on your right hand side apply to you! They may well be repeated to the left or above the road. * Red: you must not cross the stop line, or if there is no stop line you must not pass the light itself. 40

41 * Orange: you must not cross the stop line, or if there is no stop line you must not pass the light itself. Orange thus has the same significance as red, UNLESS as the light turns orange you are so close that you can not stop safely; in that case you may drive on providing you do not endanger other drivers.!!!!!!!! TO DRIVE THROUGH A RED OR AN ORANGE TRAFFIC LIGHT IS A SERIOUS TRAFFIC OFFENCE!!!!!!!!!!! * Green: you may pass the stop line and the traffic light. 41

42 * N.B.: There are also two or three coloured lights which apply: To pedestrians only; To cyclists and mopeds only Red, orange and green arrows * Red-orange-green ( tricolour) arrows: They have the same meaning as the usual tricolour traffic lights but only apply in the direction indicated by the arrows; arrows indicating different directions may appear simultaneously, even if they are of different colours 42

43 * Red traffic light combined with green arrow(s) If one or more green arrows are lit up at the same time as the red light you may pass the red light in order to follow the direction of the arrows, you must however give way to traffic and pedestrians coming from the other direction. * There are some other red, orange and green arrow lights but they don t apply to cyclist Flashing lights * Flashing orange light You may always drive through a flashing orange light, but you must be doubly careful, as all the usual priority rules still apply. The flashing orange light may be used: - as a separate single light; - as two flashing lights in turn; 43

44 - as the middle light of tricolour lights, if these are not working (e.g. if they are faulthy); - to replace the green light at dual or tricoloured signals; the flashing light is followed by the orange light then comes the red! So if you come across a flashing orange light you always have to be extra careful!!!!! * Flashing traffic light at level crossings - Two alternately flashing red light, accompanied by the ringing of a bell: You must not cross the stop line or if there is no stop line you must not pass the traffic light itself!!!! This rule applies to all road users including pedestrians and cyclists. 44

45 - White flashing lights mean you may cross. However always do so with care and make sure there is no train coming!!! You will find railway crossings at Heverlee at the Naamsesteenweg and Hertog Englebertlaan (near Campus Arenberg). Be careful! 45

46 !!!!! SOME PLACES OF ATTENTION IN LEUVEN!!!!! 1. Crossroad Naamsepoort: regardless of the fact that a lot of cyclist do so you can not drive trough this traffic light!!! Not even to turn right!!! If you don t want to wait: you can step down from your bike, take your bike by the hand (which makes you a pedestrian), use the footpath and walk past the traffic light and get back on your bike at the cycle track behind the corner.!!!!! This offence will cost you 100 if you drive through the orange traffic light and 150 if you drive through the red light!!!!!! 46

47 2. Crossroad Tiensestraat/ Maria Theresiastraat: same as the crossroad at Naamsepoort. A lot of cyclists cross the orange/red light here as well. You can not do that! Drivers coming from the other directions do not expect you to do this so they won t take care and you will endanger yourself. 47

48 The road markings Once again there is a whole wide range of road markings so I will only mention the ones that are most relevant Lines (length-ways) * Solid white line: It is prohibited for any driver to cross this solid white line; if the line separates the two flows of traffic then, you must not drive to the left of it. You should imagine this line as an invisible wall. You can cross this line if there is a non-moving obstacle on your side of the road (for example a removal-van). * Broken white line It is prohibited for any driver to cross this broken line, unless you are going to overtake, turn left, turn round or change lanes. If you are changing lanes you must give way to the drivers already in the lane you are entering. * Double solid and broken white lines You only have to take into account the line on your side; if you cross the broken line in order to overtake you may of course cross back over in order to regain your initial lane. * Bus lane 48

49 Traffic sign F17a en F17b On a road with an F17(a or b) traffic sign, the lane that is marked off with wide broken white lines and has the word BUS on it, is reserved for - public transport vehicles - school buses - priority vehicles, on emergency call - taxis - vehicles turning on the next junction Cyclists may cycle here when there is a cycle symbol on the F17 traffic sign. Most of the time there is also a cycle sign painted on the ground. Cyclist must drive here one after the other they can not cycle side by side. * Temporary markings In order to divert traffic during road works temporary orange markings may be used: - a solid orange line or orange cones placed closely to each other at regular intervals have the same meaning as a solid white line, i.e. you may not cross or drive to the left of this line. 49

50 - a broken orange line or groups of orange cones positioned in lines have the same meaning as a broken white line. If orange road markings are placed they override white lines even if these are visible. * Lines indicating a cycle lane: That part of the public road marked off by two parallel broken white lines and of insufficient width for a car, is a cycle lane. 50

51 * Markings indicating the actual edge of the road A white solid line or a yellow broken line indicate the edge of the road Markings across the road * The stop line A solid white line, at right angles to the edge of the road, indicates the place where you have to stop when there are traffic lights or where there is a STOP sign. 51

52 * Line made up of white triangles set across the road (shark s teeth) The shark s teeth indicate the place where drivers must stop in order to give way as required by an upside down triangle sign. * Pedestrian (zebra) crossing White bands set parallel to the axis of the road mark off a pedestrian crossing. 52

53 * Crossing for cyclists and mopeds Two broken lines formed by white squares or parallelograms mark off a crossing which cyclists and mopeds must use in order to cross the road Other road markings I will mention the road markings but I will give an explanation with the ones that matter for cyclists. * White lane indication arrows * Lane closure arrows 53

54 * Bus stop You can cycle over this bus zone. * Traffic islands and traffic displacement zones * Parking zones 54

55 * Advance cycle lane at traffic lights At traffic lights a cycle lane may lead to a box, which is edged by two white (stop) lines crossing the width of a lane, within is a white painted picture of a bicycle. When the traffic lights are red cyclists and mopeds may position themselves in the box (so that, when the lights are green, they can pass safely in front of the cars and either go straight on or turn). An F14 information sign announces an advance cycle lane. F14 * Advance lane indication arrows for cyclists 55

56 At a junction solid white lines can mark off per-selection lanes for cyclists; in the lane there is a white painted picture of a bicycle and arrows indicate the direction to follow. You are given advance warning by F13 information sign. F13 (there will be extra cycle icons added) * Special tram/ bus route You can not cycle here unless crossing a junction. * Sometimes it can get a bit complicated 56

57 Control of traffic The Highway Code stipulates that traffic is controlled by: 57

58 - Signals by authorized persons - Signals: traffic lights, traffic signs, and road markings: - The highway code!!!! In practice these are applied in the following order!!!!: For example: 1.Signals by authorized persons 2.Traffic lights 3.Traffic signs 4.The highway code * If the light is green the stop sign does not apply. You don t have to stop here. * If a police officer is controlling traffic at a junction his signals override the traffic lights, the priority signs, the road markings and even the traffic regulations Rules of priority 58

59 IMPORTANT: WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO GIVE WAY? To vehicles on rails: You must always give way to any vehicle on rails, trams as well as trains, and whether they come from the left or right. Priority from the right: if there is no authorized officer, traffic light or priority sign at a crossroads then the general rule regarding priority or priority from the right applies, i.e. you must give way to al drivers. This general rule applies everywhere, for example parking places, foto At a crossroads where there is a B17 traffic sign. The B17 sign emphasizes the priority from the right rule at crossroads. 59

60 At a roundabout: where there is a roundabout, indicated by a D5 sign, you must give way to traffic which is already engaged on the roundabout, this is indicated by either a B1 or B5 sign. At crossroads where there is a B1 traffic sign: you must give way to all drivers, coming from left or right. A line of shark s teeth tells you where you must stop in case there is a driver coming which has priority. At a crossroads where there is a B5 stop sign: you must give way to all drivers coming from your left or right, and you must also always stop even if there is no traffic on the other road-either at the white stop line or at the edge of the other road, where you can more easily see the traffic on that road. 60

The police in Leuven does regular controls during the year specifying on these topics. These controls are preventive and repressive so be aware!
