Confusing sign! What does this mean.


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I encountered this sign the other day and was very confused about whether I could turn right.

Location: NUH, eastbound Lower Kent Ridge Road.

 

Top sign: No right turn.

Bottom sign: Vehicles not exceeding 2500kg in unladen weight.

 

What in the world does this mean? Literally, I think it should mean that the top sign applies to vehicles specified by the bottom sign. So, "No right turn for vehicles not exceeding 2500kg in unladen weight." So, "No right turn for vehicles under 2500kg", so "No right turn for small cars and motorcycles, trucks and lorries can turn."

 

But that is the opposite of what makes sense, and also the opposite of what everyone seems to be doing! It's a small/tight corner, making sense only for small vehicles. And indeed, I saw taxis and motorcycles using it to turn right, and no lorries.

 

So what does it really mean? Small vehicle cannot turn, or big vehicle cannot turn?

Haha ok, makes sense -- I was just confused because the only people actually turning when I drove by were small cars and motorcycles 😶

No right turn for vehicles not exceeding 2500KG

Most cars and all motorcycles don't exceed 2500KG. 

 

This is a very common road sign.. :)

yup.. unless it's just the no turn right sign.. then it cannot be turn.. Some roads comes with the top sign (no turn right) plus timing below.. those are tricky.. haha.. you need to think before going to that lane.. :) 

most of the time, when i see those "confusing" aka "need to think" signs, I'll go slightly ahead to turn.. It's safer.. haha..

Looking at the road and the sign, it just doesn't make much sense thou. 

At such a small junction, why only vehicles >= 2500kg (7 seats fully loaded? up to 3000kg? Lorry,truck,bus, and trailers) can turn? From the amount of cars coming doesn't look like a loading/unloading road which is purely made for commercial use.

Anyone has any idea why?

That's why I think the sign is possibly incorrect -- everyone is doing the opposite! No lorry could fit through that tiny space. I'm 80% sure that what they really meant to say was, "No right turn, vehicles exceeding 2500kg". 

I've written to LTA to ask for clarification! Will update if I get a response.
