Advanced Stop Lines (ASLs) are stop lines for cyclists at traffic signals, which are marked beyond the stop line for general traffic. They are designed to help cyclists pull away in front of traffic, and can be useful in that regard.

The Highway Code, rule 178 specifically makes reference to advanced stop lines.

It states that,

“Motorists, including motorcyclists, must stop at the first white line reached if the lights are amber or red and should avoid blocking the way or encroaching on the marked area at other times, e.g. if the junction ahead is blocked. If your vehicle has proceeded over the first white line at the time that the signal goes red, you must stop at the second white line, even if your vehicle is in the marked area. Allow cyclists time and space to move off when the green signal shows”.
