18 ILS Critical Area Holding Position Sign ATC may hold you at this sign, on a taxiway, when the instrument landing system is being used at the airport. Vehicles driving beyond this point may interfere with the ILS signal to approaching aircraft.ILS Critical Area Holding Position Sign
21 Runway Holding Position Sign Always stop at this sign and wait for ATC clearance to proceed. In this example, the threshold for runway 15 is to your left and the threshold for runway 33 is to your right. This sign is located next to the yellow holding position marking painted on taxiways that intersect runways and on runways that intersect other runways.Runway Holding Position Sign
22 Does this sign mean you are clear of the runway safety area?
23 Runway Boundary SignThis sign faces the runway and is visible to pilots exiting the runway. It is located next to the yellow holding position markings painted on the taxiway pavement. Taxi past this sign to be sure you are clear of the runway.Runway Boundary Sign
24 Direction Sign for Runway Exit Indicates an exit from a runway. Located just prior to the intersection, on the same side of the runway as the exit.Direction Sign Runway Exit
26 Runway Holding Position Marking This painted marking is found on taxiways at runway intersections and indicates where a vehicle is to stop. The solid lines are on the side where the vehicle is to hold and the dashed lines are always on the side toward the runway. Do not cross the markings until cleared.Runway Holding Position Sign

28 Closed Runway and Taxiway Marking Indicates a closed runway or taxiway. On a permanently closed runway, it will be placed at each runway end and at 1,000 ft. intervals. It will also be placed at each entrance of a permanently closed taxiway. A raised-light X, plywood or fabric may be used in lieu of a pavement marking.
29 WHAT your intentions are. CommunicationsControllers are required to get an acknowledgement of “hold short” instructions, so a “hold short” must be read back. When proceeding onto a movement area, vehicle operators must tell the controller three things:WHO you are,WHERE you are, andWHAT your intentions are.
30 If you are told to ‘Go Ahead’ by ATC: The controller wants you to state your intentions, HE DOES NOT MEAN PROCEED!!!
