(1) A traffic control device (except a road marking or parking control sign) applies to a person if—
(a) the device faces the person; or
(b) the person has passed the device and the device faced the person as the person approached it.
1 Parking control sign and road marking are defined in the dictionary.
2 Rule 341 deals with road markings, and rule 346 with parking control signs.
(2) However, the device does not apply to the person if the position of the device indicates that it does not apply to the person.
1 If a driver is driving in a marked lane of a multi-lane road, a traffic lane arrow above another marked lane does not apply to the driver.
2 If a driver is turning left using a slip lane at an intersection, a traffic light on the right side of the slip lane does not apply to the driver.
3 If a driver is driving on a two-way road, a speed-limit sign facing only traffic travelling in the opposite direction does not apply to the driver.
