Article 6. Instructions Given by Authorized Officials

 1. When they are directing traffic, authorized officials shall be easily identifiable at a distance, at night as well as by day.

 2. Road-users shall promptly obey all instructions given by authorized officials directing traffic.

 3. It is recommended: that domestic legislation should provide that directions given by authorized officials directing traffic shall include the following:

     (a) Arm raised upright; this gesture shall mean “attention, stop” for all road-users except drivers who are no longer able to stop with sufficient safety; further, if made at an intersection, this gesture shall not require drivers already on the intersection to stop;
     (b) Arm or arms outstretched horizontally; this gesture shall constitute a stop signal for all road-users approaching from any direction which would cut across that indicated by the outstretched arm or arms; after making this gesture, the authorized official directing traffic may lower his arm or arms; this gesture shall likewise constitute a stop signal for drivers in front of or behind the official;
      (c) Swinging red light; this gesture shall constitute a stop signal for road-users towards whom the light is directed.

 4. The instructions given by authorized officials directing traffic shall take precedence over those conveyed by road signs, traffic light signals and road markings, and over traffic regulations.
