Traffic Signs, Signals and Highway Markings

Warning Signs (continued)

Merge and Lane Added
At first glance this warning sign may appear to warn you of merging traffic and nothing else. While exit only means that a lane is being "dropped" from the freeway, this sign tells you that traffic is entering the freeway and a lane is being added. When you are merging or on the freeway take care to:

  • be cautious and aware that you will have to merge safely with freeway traffic.
  • If you are on the freeway, be aware that traffic may still try to merge because some drivers are not familiar with the lane added situation.
