From that date, no vehicle may stop within 45 ft. on the approach side of a crossing, the area to be indicated by a double line of studs extending from the pavement to the centre of the road. In places where it will not be possible to do this, the line may be placed at a distance between 30 ft and 48 ft. from a crossing, and may be omitted altogether in some cases.
The prohibition on waiting will be complete.
