1 The white lines on Fri Oct 20, 2017 11:59 am


There are usually three types of white lines on a road, namely the single line, the double line and the broken line. These lines are there for a purpose, to ensure the safety of all vehicles. Yet negligence tends to create problems for both drivers and the police. Hence a driver should be aware what each line symbolizes. The broken line can be cut when overtaking vehicles in the same lane given that no vehicles are coming in the opposite lane. The single line can be cut when turning to a by-road from the main road or entering the main road from a by-road and the double lines should not be cut at any given situation. If you do so, you will be heavily fined.
