    Road rule quiz that asks when vehicles have to stop at a set of traffic lights leaves baffled drivers divided – so do you know the answer?

    • The Department of Transport and Main Roads (Queensland) provided the answer

    A seemingly routine road rule question posed online has left plenty of drivers second guessing the correct answer.

    The quiz was shared on Facebook by Queensland‘s transport department showing a blue car and orange motorbike both travelling straight ahead. 

    As the traffic lights changes to yellow, the quiz asks if both vehicles required to stop.

    Responses were divided, with the majority stating the car was fine to proceed through the intersection – while recommending the motorbike should stop. 

    Others felt the motorbike was too close to the intersection to stop suddenly, recommending they proceed with caution as breaking quickly could cause an accident.

    One user even pointed to the make of the bike in determining his answer.

    He felt ‘if it’s a moped, prepare to stop. If it’s the bimmer, make sure you scan for red light and speed cameras. Then if all OK, drop a gear and pin it.’

    Transport officials eventually provided the correct answer, ending the debate online.

    They stated ‘drivers approaching, or at, a yellow traffic light must stop if they are able to do so before reaching the stop line unless it is not safe.

    ‘In this image, the blue car does not need to stop as it has already entered the intersection. The motorbike must stop as close as practicable to, but before reaching the stop line, unless it is unsafe to do so.

    ‘A yellow traffic light is the beginning of the red-light phase, not the end of the green.’
