The “No overtaking in this area” sign is a regulatory sign that prohibits drivers from overtaking other vehicles in the designated area. The sign consists of a circular red border with a white background and a black symbol of a vehicle being overtaken by another vehicle.
The sign is placed in areas where overtaking is dangerous or not permitted for various reasons, such as narrow roads, sharp curves, hills, bridges, tunnels, and pedestrian crossings.
The sign’s purpose is to reduce the risk of collisions by preventing drivers from overtaking other vehicles in areas where it is unsafe.
Drivers should comply with the sign and avoid overtaking other vehicles in the designated area. They should also maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle in front, as they may be required to slow down or stop suddenly.
Failure to comply with the sign may result in a traffic violation, penalty, and potentially dangerous driving situations.
