Road marking symbols : a compilation of the existing regulations in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie har syftat till att sammanställa befintliga regelverk och riktlinjer för användandet av symboler i vägbanan i de nordiska länderna Danmark, Finland, Norge och Sverige samt i Nederländerna, Storbritannien och Tyskland. Dessutom har en mindre litteraturstudie genomförts för att undersöka vilka dokumenterade kunskaper regelverken baseras på. Symboler i vägbanan används på liknande sätt i de sju studerade länderna. I stor utsträckning saknas det dock dokumenterade kunskaper och forskning om hur symbolerna ska se ut. Det borde därför finnas utrymme för att standardisera symbolerna inom Norden, vilket skulle kunna ge ett mer enhetligt intryck där trafikanterna känner igen och förstår informationen, samtidigt som utläggningen av symbolerna skulle kunna förenklas. Sammanfattningsvis kan konstateras att, från hastighetssynpunkt, primärt följande symboler skulle kunna vara av intresse att standardisera inom Norden vad gäller användning, utformning och mått:

  • körfältspilar
  • pilar för körfältsbyte
  • väjningsplikt
  • stopplikt
  • hastighetsbegränsning
  • vägnummer
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to synthesize existing regulations and guiding principles for use of road marking symbols in the Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, together with the Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany. Additionally, a small literature study has been carried out in order to investigate what documented knowledge the regulations are based upon. Road marking symbols are used in a similar way in the studied countries. However, documented knowledge and research on what the symbols should look like are to a great extent missing. Therefore, it should be possible to standardize the road marking symbols within the Nordic countries, which could lead to a more homogeneous impression where the road users recognize and understand the information, at the same time as the application of the symbols could be simplified.

In summary, the following road marking symbols could be of interest to standardize within the Nordic countries, regarding use, design and dimensions:

  • Lane arrows
  • Deflection arrows
  • Give way symbols
  • STOP text
  • Speed limit symbols
  • Road numbers
