A new country means new rules. Let's discover the particularities of the road system in Mygotopia.
1 - Road marking
Road markings differ depending on the type of road you are using. Motorways, secondary roads and urban roads each have their own set of road markings, the subtleties of which are as follows:
In most cases, secondary roads will have a double, continuous and central yellow line separating the two traffic lanes. These lanes will be bordered on the outside by a continuous white line. The continuous double yellow line indicates that overtaking is strictly prohibited.
The sections of road where overtaking is permitted will be indicated by a central white broken line. Before the beginning and before the end of each portion of the broken line, drivers will be warned by the presence of a double broken centre line, white on the side where the overtaking zone begins, yellow on the side where the overtaking zone ends.
Motorways and one-way roads
Motorways, consisting of two one-way roads of at least two lanes, placed side by side but spaced by a greater or lesser width, shall be bordered on each side by a continuous white line. The traffic lanes are delimited by dashed white lines. The acceleration and deceleration lanes are separated from the other lanes by a wide white line. Mygotopian motorways are also distinguished from other roads by the pinkish colour of their coating.
One-way roads with only one lane (e.g. motorway ramps) are bordered on both sides by a continuous white line.
Urban roads have only a continuous centre line or a long broken line. Where the latter is broken, overtaking should be avoided but is still permitted. It is also possible that no road markings are present. Often the end or beginning of a marked area is indicated by a small broken line on the edge of the road.
2 - Types of roads
In Mygotopia, you will mainly use three different types of road: major roads, motorways and secondary roads.
The motorways provide high-speed access to the largest cities in Mygotopia. They are completely free of charge and are limited to 120 km/h (100 km/h for trucks and coaches). They are generally 2x2 or 2x3 lane roads. Destinations accessible via the motorways are indicated on blue signs.
The major roads are the main axes crossing Mygotopia from one side to the other. They are 2x1 lane roads with a speed limit of 100 km/h (90 km/h for trucks and coaches). The towns and villages accessible via these major roads are indicated on green signs. They are generally very busy.
The secondary roads constitute the remaining traffic routes. They are generally not very busy and allow small villages to be reached. They are limited to 100 km/h (90 km/h for trucks and coaches). The communes accessible via the secondary roads are indicated on white signs.
3 - Speed limits
Speed limits in Mygotopia differ slightly from those in Grand Utopia. Here is a poster made by the Mygotopian Police, showing the maximum speeds allowed depending on the type of road you are on.
