Article 151 Priority signs
1. Priority signs are intended to inform road users of the special priority rules at intersections or narrow passages.
2. The nomenclature and meaning of the priority signs are as follows:
R-1. Give way. Obligation for all drivers to give way at the next intersection to vehicles travelling on the road they approach or to the lane they intend to join.
Not respecting the give way sign is considered a serious offence with the loss of 4 points from your licence.
R-2. Mandatory stop. Obligation for all drivers to stop their vehicle before the next stop line or, if there isn’t one, immediately before the intersection, and give way to the vehicles that drive on the road they wish to join.
Not respecting the stop sign is considered a serious offence with the loss of 4 points from your licence.
If, due to exceptional circumstances, from the place where the stop has taken place, there is not enough visibility, the driver must stop again at the place where visibility is regained, without endangering any other road user.
R-3. Road with priority. Indicates to drivers that they are travelling on a road with priority at intersections over vehicles travelling on another road.
R-4. End of priority. It indicates the proximity of the place in which the road loses its priority to another road.
R-5. Priority in the opposite direction. Prohibited to enter a narrow passage while it is not possible to cross without forcing the vehicles that move in the opposite direction to stop.
R-6. Priority over the opposite direction. This indicates to the drivers that, in a next narrow section, they have priority in relation to the vehicles that move in the opposite direction.
3. Although they do not meet the requirements of Article 150.1, the following are also priority signals: P-1, P-1 a, P-1 b, P-1 c, P-1 d, P-2, P-6, P-7 and P-8.
