Mar 14,2017

The lines on the road is to guide the driver, make them pay attention to the traffic situation of each section. If you do not follow the road lines while driving, you will be penalized for penalties. But some might be terrible. It is not alarmist, let's see!

  • 1. Deceleration Marking

Marking in the toll station square, exit ramp or other requirements of the vehicle slowdown of the white line, which might be single dashed line, double dashed line and three dashed line, perpendicular to the direction of traffic, used to warn the front should slow down.

This is called carway longitudinal deceleration lines, its main role is through the lane to narrow the formation of a sense of oppression, so that the driver needs to slow down the corners, ramps and other positions automatically slow down. Usually marking in the highway or fast road in the sharp bend, ramp entrance, bridge ramp entrance.

Some also use colorful lines, which can play a more alert role, the same as the slowing line, the general color lines are planned in the ramp or the location of the ramp.

  • 2. Distance confirmation lines

White parallel thick solid line used to confirm the distance, match with vehicle distance signs, mark in the often overtaking, easy to accident or other needs section. Usually marking in the event of overtaking, accident, or others.


  • 3. Lane Division Line

In the figure below, the white dotted line is the lane dividing line, in order to mark the position of the carriageway (dotted line can cross).The white solid line is the carriageway separation line, which prohibits crossing the overtaking. Because in the tunnel, prohibit overtaking, so the middle of the solid line, but if not in the high-speed tunnel, the middle is the dotted line.

  • 4. Wrong Visual Lines

Tunnel as a special section of the highway, the inside and outside brightness are different, the vehicle enter the tunnel like in a "black hole", once the speed is too fast, it likely to cause the vehicle out of control or rear-end. This is called "wrong visual reticle" special slowing lines ,marking from 200m outside to 100m inside, which will make the driver a sense of spatial compression.In the direction of the traffic, the lane presents a visual effect that is narrowed by the width and the road is concave, which prompting the driver slowdown before enter the tunnel.

Raised white lines are convex lines, it mainly used to remind the corners, downhill and other sections.
Single yellow line: is the carriageway separation line, prohibit cross the overtaking.

  • 6. Diversion Line

Mainly is one or several white V-shaped lines or diagonal lines which marks according to the intersection terrain. Indicating that the vehicle must travel according to the provisions of the route, not pressure lines or cross-line travel. Mainly marked in too wide, irregular or driving conditions are more complex intersections, three-dimensional cross the ramp or other special locations.
