Roadways • At no time shall a light vehicle or haul truck overtake another light vehicle or an operating haul truck • Maintain minimum 50m following distance behind haul trucks at times • No haul truck, equipment, or light vehicle shall stop, block, or impede any intersection • All vehicles approaching a stop sign must come to a complete stop. In absence of a stop sign apply “right of way protocol”


Intersections • A place where two or more roads meet

• Right of Way Priorities are to be followed by all, unless a stop sign exists • Stop signs shall be followed by all vehicles and equipment • If any equipment or vehicle loses traction or breaks down in an intersection inform Mine Dispatch immediately on radio Channel 5 and clearly demarcate the area

Vehicles need to exercise caution when approaching all intersections


U-Turns • Equipment of any size may perform a U-Turn using these steps • Conduct only where road width allows for one continuous turn to the driver’s good side • NO U-turns allowed at: − Intersections − Park-up areas − Where people are on the ground

• Come to a controlled and a complete stop using wheels and turn signal to indicate U-turn • Ensure clear visibility in both directions and complete turn • Except for normal operation in an operational area, blind side Uturns require a spotter
