STOP : Stop well before the stop line, and don’t crowd the intersection. This not only obstructs a clear view of the intersection for other road users, but also make the zebra crossing unsafe for the pedestrians. You are allowed to turn left at the red signal unless there is a sign specifically forbidding you to do so. When turning, yield the right of way to pedestrians and vehicles from other directions.
Amber Light :The Amber light gives time to vehicles to clear the road when the signal is changing from green to red. If caught in the Amber signal in the middle of a large road crossing do not press your accelerator in panic but do continue with care.
Fleshing Red :You must come to a complete stop, yield to all other traffic and to pedestrians. Proceed only when the way is clear.
GREEN ARROW SIGNAL :To proceed with caution in the direction the green arrow points. Remember to yield to all pedestrians and vehicles already in the intersection
GO :If first in line, do not go tearing off at the green signal but pause to see whether vehicles from other directions have cleared the road. Sometimes you are allowed to turn left or right too, unless separate signs exist for each direction. if turning, yield the right of way to pedestrians and vehicles from other directions.
Flashing Yellow :To slow down and proceed with caution
Bare roads:Bare roads will lead to total vehicular confusion. Markings are painted on the road to direct, guide and regulate the road user. Road markings include all lines patters, words and colours applied on or attached to the road surface or curb, for the said purpose
On undivided two-way roads, the center line separates the opposing streams of traffic and facilitates their movements. The center line can be a single broken line, a single continuous solid line (barrier line), a double solid line or a combination of solid line and broken line. Single and double solid lines, whether white or yellow, must not be crossed or even straddled.
Traffic Paints:Traffic paints are commonly used for road markings. Other materials such as, road studs, cat's eyes and thermoplastic strips also find their application in road markings. These markings promote road safety and ensure smooth flow of traffic. Sometimes, road markings are used to supplement the message of road signs and other devices
Double Continuous lines are used where visibility is restricted in both directions. Neither stream of traffic is allowed to cross the lines.
Centre barrier line marking for a six lane road. On undivided roads with at least three traffic lanes in each direction, the centre line marking shall consist of a double solid continuous line .
Border or Edge Lines: These are border lines as they tell the driver till which edge can he drive safely. These lines are usually drawn on the edge of the carriageway.
Centre barrier line marking for a four lane road:On undivided roads with at least two traffic lanes in each direction, the center line marking shall consist of a single solid continuous line of 150 mm wide with lane markings of 1.5 m segments and 3 m gaps
Combination of solid and broken lines:If you are on the side of the broken line, then you can cross the line, provided it is safe and not dangerous to do so. You should never cross the line if the line happens to be continuous and not a breaking one
Give Way Line:A double dotted slanting line is observed at road junctions and this is the give way line. You will also find a red reverse triangle on this sign. It allows the traffic to move on the main road.
Lane Line:The division of the carriageway into separate lanes for traffic traveling in the same direction on either side of the center-line or median strip helps to promote travel in proper lanes and curb the meandering tendency of the drivers, thus promoting safety and ensuring maximum capacity. Traffic lane lines are broken lines which permit lane changing with caution. The traffic lane lines shall be normally be single broken lines.
Parking Prohibited Lines:A no-parking sign either on a continuous yellow line on the kerb or on the edge, means that much area is the no-parking zone.
Pedestrian Crossings:Pedestrian crossings are also called zebra lines for there are black and white stripes painted parallel to the road. Pedestrians are expected to follow the traffic lights and cross only at these points. The drivers have to stop at these signs to allow the pedestrians to pass. These markings are important and the drivers have to respect them for they grant the right of passing or moving or crossing the road to pedestrians.
Stop Line:A stop line is one which you find before a road intersection. This stop line is usually a lone solid slanting line. Here is where you need to stop at the instructions of the duty traffic police. The traffic signals are also located on this line. Usually, the pedestrian crossing is also marked at this juncture but the stop line will be before the crossing to facilitate the pedestrians.
White Lines:White markings are used to indicate carriageway markings. If restrictions have to be indicated, then yellow markings are used. If you find white or yellow together and painted along with black lines, then they mean these are kerb markings or object markings.
Yellow Box Junctions or Keep Clear:Yellow box junctions are yellow diagonal lines within a small box. It means that the drivers can pass it only if there is enough space ahead of this junction. In no ways, can a driver stop at this marking, even if it means stopping for a brief period of time.
