Purpose of the hard shoulder
Any broken-down vehicles can find sanctuary on the hard shoulder, safely away from the flow of traffic. Second, the hard shoulder functions as an emergency lane, letting emergency vehicles bypass traffic and get to the accident scene faster.
The shoulder is a section of pavement outside of an outer lane that is provided for emergency traffic and to preserve the pavement edges from damage. The paved shoulder is the piece of the road that is at the same level as the highway and is adjacent to the regularly utilised segment of the highway.
