Why ?

  • Because we want to map the German-sign 328, the French [C8], the Dutch L14 sign
  • Because the knowledge of upcoming emergency bays can be helpful to a driver with a mechanical problem or a health problem.
  • Because such bays are not proper lanes for driving, they can't be modeled as an increase in lanes=* for the length of the emergency bay.
