I just hope they make a swift change to clarify the process. And, that they take road markings serious and repaint them every year after the stupid studded tires have removed them.
The regions are given 4 years to complete the change, and are instructed to prioritize ramps, according to Veien & Vi: http://www.vegvesen.no/_attachment/331942/binary/579283

In Riau Province, Indonesia ... I think we have both. But, we just don't understand how the yellow line works (most of the time).

Like this one is Ordinary National Road to neighboring province (we dont have expressway/highway). In Indonesia we drive on the left side of the road anyway.

ALL WHITE

And in some stretch we have YELLOW on the left.

There's a national road inside the city proper 3x3 ordinary road heading to the airport. It now has YELLOW on the right instead . This is inside the city of Pekanbaru

In Indonesia, we have three level of Road Management, National Road (developed and maintained by Central Government), Provincial Road (developed and maintained by Provincial Government), and City/Regent Road (developed and maintained by Local City/County Government).

We have Tollway as well, developed and maintained by private company. We dont have it here in Riau Province.

I honestly believe there are such rules in Indonesia. There are no regulations. Some lanes are wider, some lanes are narrower. Just thing that I dont understand.

I get the idea some Asian countries want to copy the "American" yellow road markings, but don't understand the concept, so they just paint some markings yellow and the others white. Sometimes the outer marking, sometimes the inner markings, etc.

Does the color matter, if people just ignore the markings regardless of the colour?

Still, you have to begin somewhere. You don't improve traffic safety by accepting people disregard any traffic rules. If traffic is civilized in Europe, it can also be civilized in Asia or Africa. Decent road markings are a good place to start.

Well...

In my opinion, the road markings are just waste of money in India, for instance. Why to mark three parallell lines, when the reality is a mass of vehicles blowing the horn and driving eight side by side.

Sometime people have to learn to value human life, and drive more according to rules, right?

I read that motorways in Norway, were technically defined as parallel one way roads, which would probably explain why they were previously fully white?

Here's more examples of a new Norwegian motorway with yellow centre lines.
A new portion of E-18. Please note that these photos were taken before any opening of the road, which would explain some dirt and things in the roadway.

in Serbia there is no yellow lines i think, only in Belgrade in some boulevards yellow lanes marks that its not for regular cars, but for buses, taxi's, ambulances, police and that stuff.

Please, explain me something: what is the difference (in terms of passing regulations) of

THIS (which I assume is no passing allowing = no crossing the solid line allowed)
image hosted on flickr



and THIS
image hosted on flickr


Is the latter passing authorized only from drivers on the further-spaced intermittent line side? If so, why not follow international standards and put a solid line in the line that can't cross (overtake over) to the opposite one?

The double solid line means no passing, as you said. The longer dashed and shorter dashed line combined means that you are allowed to pass from both sides, but that passing from the side with the longer dash could be dangerous, i.e. it is not recommendend that you pass, but you may do so if you want to.

yeah, it doesn't mean that passing is prohibited... but , it's like "dude, you really shouldn't pass there, unless you want to be scraped off the truck you never saw around the bend"

We also have a single solid line (sperrelinje) but it is never used. If we were to follow so-called international standards in the example above, one would not be able to overtake, coming towards the camera's position. However, we sometimes have a single solid line in combination with the warning line above (varsellinje) when the other direction has a crawl lane and the line of sight is sufficient for overtaking.

Another fun fact is that the long line above is 9m with a 3m gap, the short 3m with a 9m gap. They are 10cm wide, sometimes 15. However, I'm not sure about the length of solid lines, so don't ask.
