Broken (or dotted) white lines
These mark the centre of the carriageway.
- Short lines and long gaps are to help drivers keep in the traffic lane.
- Long lines and short gaps are a warning that there is a hazard ahead and drivers should not cross the line
Continuous or broken lines at the side of the road mark the edge of the carriageway
These are also used to mark lay-bys and junctions.
Angled lines (chevrons and hatching) show areas of the carriageway which drivers should not enter
These are used to separate lines of traffic at places such as junctions and bends.
Yellow zigzag markings are used at places such as school entrances
These may also be used at fire and ambulance station exits.
Double white lines
Double white lines are either two parallel continuous lines or a continuous line with a broken (dotted) line alongside it. If the continuous line is closer to the vehicle, drivers must not cross the continuous line except under certain circumstances.
If the broken line is closer to the vehicle, overtaking is allowed if it is safe. The vehicle must return to the correct side of the road before the next continuous line is reached.
Yellow box markings at junctions
These are provided to keep vehicles from blocking the junction and preventing the free flow of traffic.
Give way and stop lines
These are provided at road junctions to show which road has priority.
