You are on a three-lane motorway. A red cross is shown above the hard shoulder and mandatory speed limits above all other lanes. This means

A the hard shoulder is for emergency or breakdown use only
Explaination
A red cross above the hard shoulder shows it is closed as a running lane and should only be used for emergencies or breakdowns. At busy times within an Active Traffic Management (ATM) area the hard shoulder may be used as a running lane. This will be shown by a mandatory speed limit on the gantry above.
B the hard shoulder can be used as a rest area if you feel tired
C the hard shoulder can be used as a normal running lane
D the hard shoulder has a speed limit of 50 mph
