The new BRT lanes on Avenida Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro are marked with overhead signs on each block. Since cross streets are one-way, every other block indicates the available turn lanes. Thus approaching a right turn street, the four lanes are marked (with arrow): All traffic (forward arrow) All traffic (forward arrow) Busses only (forward arrow) Busses only (forward arrow) and All other traffic (right arrow) Non-bus vehicles on the right lane are required to turn right. The alternate block is marked: All traffic (forward arrow and left turn arrow) All traffic (forward arrow) Busses only (forward arrow) Busses only (forward arrow) The signs are clear and there's no deniability. They're also well-respected in practice.
