Do you know the White & Yellow lines are also the part of Road Signs ?

Some Roads have White or some have Yellow Marking, Why?

Today's most of the people don't care about road signs and traffic rules. For most of us Red, Yellow and Green lights are the main concern in traffic rules, No one care for other sign boards or road markings. Have you ever try to know about White and yellow lines on the roads ? 

The Road Safety is a prime concern in all over the world. Road accidents are increasing every year. So let's try to informed ourselves about those markings that might make our drive safe.

We all have noticed white and yellow lines on the roads. Sometimes they are solid and sometimes they are broken lines. These line are also a major part of road signs.

"White Lines painted on the pavement indicate traffic traveling in your direction and Yellow Lines mark the center of a two-way road used for two-way traffic".

One Solid Yellow Line:  
It means you can overtake other vehicles but can't pass the Solid Yellow line. This rule may vary from state to state. For example, a solid yellow line is intended for establishing no overtaking in Telangana.

Double Solid Yellow Line: 
Passing is not allowed over double solid line.

Broken Yellow Line: 
                 It means you can pass over the broken
 yellow line but with caution.

Solid and Broken Yellow Line together: 
If you are next to solid line, you are not allowed to overtake and cross the line, but if you are next to broken line you are allowed.

Solid White Line: 
It indicates that you must not change your 
lanes and stay in the lane you are already on. 

Broken White Line: 
It means you are allowed to change the lane, 
if it is safe to do so.
