It's markings for a Runaway Truck ramp. There are signs that indicate that if your breaks aren't working properly, you must follow the red line until it directs you to the truck ramp. Something like this:



The sign reads "Vehicles without breaks follow the red line, 1 km"

Exactly, all the highways that descend must have that red line to an emergency ramp.

I guess the (very small) right lane is for slow traffic only, like bicycle, pedestrians,...

The picture is facing uphill. Downhill, the red line follows the right lane.

That would be the shoulder. In Mexico, wide shoulders on one lane highways are used to allow cars behind you to pass you. The highways are known locally to have a "lane and a half" (Carril y medio in spanish), the half lane being the shoulder.

Is it enforced by law or just illegal behaviour of drivers?
