(2) The provisions of paragraph 1 may be dismissed if:

1.

it can avoid confusion of signals, or

2.

the necessary visibility to the respective signal can thereby be achieved, provided that there is no likelihood of confusion or confusion; or

3.

it requires local conditions, provided that there is no likelihood of confusion.
