Road Marking

Road Marking

 What’s the difference between yellow line and white line on the road?

The yellow line separates cars going in opposite directions. The white line separates cars going in the same direction.

 Do not cross the solid yellow line that separates traffic coming from opposite directions because you will be:

• Breaking the law
• Risking your safety and the safety of others
• Obstructing traffic

 It’s prohibited to drive over the continuous white line, while it is permitted to do so over the white discontinuous white line.

 Pedestrian Crossing:

• Pedestrians must use sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, bridges, and specified paths should they exist within a radius of 150 meters.

• Drivers must yield to pedestrians and let them pass in case of absence of traffic lights or a traffic officer.

• In case of absence of pedestrian paths, pedestrians must only cross the road after making sure the road is clear and safe to cross. (This does not apply to highways where pedestrians are entirely prohibited of crossing)

• Pedestrians are prohibited from using sidewalks or the road in the purpose of getting in vehicles within a 150 meters distance away from roundabouts, cross roads, traffic lights and any point where visibility is not enough.

• As a pedestrian you are not allowed to enter a roundabout. You must cross roads surrounding the roundabouts and use the specified pedestrian paths/crossings/bridges when available.

• Vehicles don’t overtake other vehicles when you’re close to a pedestrian crossing or when other cars stopped to respect the stop sign.
