(c)  Without regard to the center of the roadway, an official traffic-control device may be erected directing slow-moving traffic to use a designated lane or designating lanes to be used by traffic moving in a particular direction.

(d)  Official traffic-control devices prohibiting the changing of lanes on sections of roadway may be installed.
