& # 39; I always ride over it! & # 39; Road rules quiz distributes driver & # 39; s – and most motorists will get the answer wrong
- Drivers did not know whether it is legal to drive on a painted traffic island before they are alternated
- RACQ said it is legal to drive up to 50 meters to immediately go into a corner
- Many drivers were shocked by the results – that it is legal to queue up
A simple quiz about road rules has shown motorists the way to a common rhyme theory – with hundreds shocked by the answer.
The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) asked Facebook users if they thought it was legal if a car was driving over a painted traffic island.
The RACQ placed the question together with a cartoon photo of a blue car that drove over the painted stripes of the far left lane before it broke to the left.

The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland asked Facebook users if they thought it was legal for the blue car to drive over a painted traffic island
& # 39; Yes! You can ride on a painted island with a single continuous line around it, up to 50 meters to immediately go into a turn and / or enter or leave the road, & # 39; wrote the RACQ.
& # 39; In the image, the blue vehicle would give way to any vehicle that enters the pivot from the marked lane next to the turning strip. & # 39;
Some drivers thought the lines were there to keep drivers away from that part of the road – and thought it was illegal to drive over.
& # 39; I suspect they exist for a reason, so I would say no in most cases, & # 39; suspected a person wrong.
A number of motorists thought the lines were there to keep the drivers off that part of the road – and thought it was illegal to drive over
& # 39; Oh dear, I always drive over it, although I usually don't see them on the left and I never stand in line for some reason & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Whether or not it makes sense to do that. In that specific scenario, it would help traffic flow & # 39 ;, a man shared.
& # 39; I think it is the task to park cars & # 39; s, & # 39; someone suspected.

Someone pointed out that the line that leads to the painted island is broken, which means that drivers must be able to go over it.
But other drivers were not so shocked by the answer: & yes, it is legal to drive over a painted island. You must give way to all other traffic when leaving the island, & a woman wrote.
& # 39; I drive over it, if not every day, then at least once a week. I see no reason to create traffic jams and I cannot turn to the left because there are no cars in that row. My understanding is queued because it's illegal, & another person noted.
The RACQ went on to say that the island on the photo is there to get the traffic out of the left lane.
& # 39; They can be used for other reasons, generally situations where most vehicles have to come out of that lane, but some may want to stay in it.
& # 39; These islands are only introduced where necessary to promote the flow & # 39 ;, wrote the motorists organization.
