A dividing line is a road marking formed by a white/yellow line or two parallel white/yellow lines (broken or continous) designed to seperate the parts of a road to be used by vehicles travelling in opposite directions.
Broken Line (or Broken Line to the left of a Continous Line
You must keep to the left of these lines. You may cross them to overtake or make a turn, but you must only do so if it is safe.
You must keep to the left and must not cross these lines, unless you have to avoid an obstruction.
Broken Lane Line
When lanes are marked by broken lines the driver may change lanes when it is safe to do so by indicating the intention through proper signal.
Solid Lane Line
The lanes near intersections are often marked by Solid Lane Lines where no lane changing is permissible. The traffic driving along such lanes bound by solid lines has to move along the same direction or the direction indicated by road marking arrows thus a No-Lane changing zone is created near intersection to prevent last minute change of direction by the traffic, that may obstruct the smooth flow of traffic & cause accidents.
Motorists are expected to change lanes while driving in the Lane Change Zone (marked by lanes with broken lines) so that they are in the appropriate line when they enter the No Lane Changing Zone near the intersection. (marked by Solid Lane Lines) . The red car in the illustration iscommitting an offence.
Yellow Edge Lines
You must not stop or park your vehicle in any area where a continous yellow edge line is applied even to pick up or set down passengers or goods.
