Yes, except that I don't think Israel uses a dotted yellow line for the hard shoulder, I've never seen that. Usually the line is solid, even when there are hard shoulders. The only exception is when yellow lines are also used in Israel to mark public transportation/HOV lanes. In this case they appear as double (i.e. two side-by-side) dashed yellow lines.

Here is the dual carriageway dotted yellow shoulder in Ireland.




Thought I saw a similar pic of a similar road in Isreal. Might have been South Africa though!

Is it rightmost lane in Ireland "haunted" even for trucks?

Interesting question. In Ontario trucks often stick to the middle lane because of the shape of many of the older overpasses. They are arched and have the highest clearance in the middle. Some highways (like Highway 400) actually have signs warning trucks to stick to the middle lane. I wonder if Ireland is similar.

I doubt. Motorways are fairly new in Ireland, and there is also Europe-wide clearance for all vehicles. Usually overpasses on motorways are at least 4,5 m high. Normal trailers are at most 4 m high (some maybe 4,2 m). Such exceptions as you mention, could be possible only on very old motorways, which (as I know) are not on Ireland.

The Irish road above is probably the N7. This road has bad signposting which gives the impression that the left lane should be used for exit only, which aggravates this problem. These signs will probably be replaced with the proper ones.

Pakistan has yellow lines for the shoulder. I'm not sure if India does or not.

Its actually the N2 - approaching the M50 so maybe they are just preparing to exit

No, not us. We have solid yellow lines on the left edges of our roads, not dashed ones.

The only time you'll see a dashed yellow line is to demarcate a lane reserved for a specific type of vehicle, such as in this render of the N3 coming into Durban (this is a render, but the upgrades to the real thing which were completed not too long ago look almost identical to this).



(Personally, I think that putting the reserved bus/taxi lane on the right and not on the left wasn't a good move, but that's a discussion for another thread.)

I'm surprised that no one from Ontario has posted this yet. But the centre line has no barring on whether it is legal or illegal to pass. A broken centre line means it is safe to pass. Solid+broken on one side means safe to pass from the direction that has the broken line. Single solid means passing not advised and double yellow meaning passing is not advised more so. The only time you can not pass is if their is a sign that states "no passing allowed".

Like the Cat said, Israel never uses dotted hard shoulders, dual carriageways or not.

In Turkish Highways, Yes.



Also they use yellow traffic signs for temporary. They were also using for touristic places' information sign but they replaced with brown ones.


Some borderlines on intersections are painting on yellow-white or yellow-black but dunno what the heck does that means?

Yeah I heard about that, and it is pretty stupid in my opinion, since where there is a solid line it is usually very dangerous to pass anyway. But I guess a person who moves into oncoming traffic to pass should not be driving in any case.

I'm sure painted kerbs are to do with parking/waiting/stopping in most countries.

Yeah, although sometimes they are just used for emphasis. In Israel:
red/white = no parking (except for overnight in some places)
red/yellow = no stopping (usually at bus stops)
blue/white = paid parking only
black/white = for emphasis; this has no legal restrictions, and is just used to improve the visibility of curbs at intersections and along some roads

black/yellow (and sometimes white/yellow) is not used in Israel, although I think it's used in many other Middle Eastern countries and also in some countries in Asia, like India. I believe it is used for emphasis there, like black/white in Israel.

Anyone knows what is the meaning of the yellow lines on Turkish roads? Does it "warn" of roadworks perhaps?
