Rescue lane on multi-lane roads

From 2012, in case of traffic congestions, drivers are obligated to clear a rescue lane.

In case of traffic congestions, drivers are obligated to clear a rescue lane. If there are two lanes, the rescue lane is cleared in the middle, which means that drivers on the left lane need to divert to the left, while drivers on the right lane to the right. If the motorway is a multi-lane road, the rescue lane is cleared between the extreme left and the lane that borders on that lane.

This law contributes to saving human lives, as in case of emergency, there is no time spare. Motoring fines in case of non-compliance!
