Follow the line

The white lines along the centre of roads provide you with important information. On a single carriageway road, a ‘broken’ centre line indicates the opposing traffic lanes, simply showing you where the middle is. If the white line lengthens, it becomes a ‘hazard’ line, indicating you are approaching a bend, junction or something else you need to be wary of. If there’s no centre line, it’s usually because the road narrows to a point where two vehicles may have difficulty passing.
