Bridges

Approach bridges with care as they are often narrow. If you think two vehicles cannot fit on a narrow bridge, give way to the other driver.

When you come to a bridge which is wide enough for only two vehicles, slow down and drive carefully. Sometimes you are not allowed to overtake a vehicle going in the same direction or to pass a vehicle coming towards you.

Signs tell you what to do.

Example of sign reading 'GIVE WAY' in black text on an inverted triangle with a red border and white interior.

You must give way to any vehicle travelling in the opposite direction on the bridge.

Example of sign reading 'NO OVERTAKING OR PASSING' in black text on a rectangular white background.

You must give way to any vehicle travelling in the opposite direction on the bridge. You must not overtake any vehicle travelling in the same direction.
