The problem in that picture (in my opinion) is not the fact that the edge line's yellow but that it's dashed. Rather, it would be a problem if it were dashed white like the lines between lanes are - you need to be able to tell the difference in poor visibility conditions between the edge of the road and a crossable lane marking. A solid line of either color would be enough there, I think.

That photo looks like a street in New Zealand. Dashed yellow lines are a parking control there rather than the marking for the edge of the road. Roads there are marked with a white edge like most countries.

It's Australia (New South Wales) on a road with clearway (the broken yellow shoulder markings)

In Germany yellow markings are only used as temporary markings (e.g. near road construction). They overrule white markings.

In places where regular yellow marking is used, what do you use for temporary markings?

Orange. Belgium uses orange as well. They are better visible than yellow markings imo.

The same color as permanent markings - if there are temporary and permanent markings in the same place telling you different things, the permanent markings are either covered with black temporary stripes or completely scraped off the pavement.

Actually I saw orange somewhere in the US recently. Can't remember where.

They use orange in Ontario, Canada for temporary markings. It really helps.

the permanent markings


The yellow lines are very used to separate the traffic of vehicles

I've heard some places are experimenting with it (Illinois I think?) but orange is a rarity. (It would be nice to see more of it though)

We use white lines to divide traffic in Ireland, using yellow for the edge of the road. The yellow lines are used on all motorways,
N-roads and most rural roads without curbs.

M50 Dublin:


M7/M8 Interchange:


N11 (National Primary Road) in Co.Wicklow, note the non-continuous yellow line used on N-roads:


The R394 (Regional Road) in Co.Cavan:

In places where regular yellow marking is used, what do you use for temporary markings?
Switzerland uses red temporary markings.

Swiss temprorary markings usually are made with adhesive tapes, so they are more easily removable that paint.

I am daltonic so orange or yellow makes no difference for me

Now in Italy only white markings are used, but I remember that until 20 years ago side markings were painted yellow... I don't remember how roadworks markings used to be like.

Has anyone mentioned the fact that Norway uses yellow line markings for the center of its roads? Anyone know if Sweden or the other Nordic countries do the same or not? In fact, does anyone have a list that actually says which European countries have white line markings in the centre of the roads and which ones have yellow? It would be interesting to see.

Don't know about Sweden or the rest of Europe, but Norway does indeed use a yellow centerline. This only applies to two-way traffic on the same strip of pavement; divided highways use all white lines.

Also worth noting is that the Irish usage of yellow edge lines is similar to the American way of doing it, as it keeps yellow always on your left.

Here's an example:

Broken white which turns into broken white + longer broken yellows, then solid yellow + broken white and finally double yellow

Maybe the logic is: White - can be crossed, yellow - thou shan't cross this line?
Looks like their usage is similar to either NZ or Australia (not sure which or both) - they use a dashed white line in the same situation that America uses a dashed yellow line, but both use a solid yellow line the same way.
