Road markings
Lanes
Lane markings
There are four types of lane markings that indicate where you must travel
on the road:

• lane lines

• dividing lines or centre lines

• edge lines

• arrows.

Lane lines

B BA

A B

Lane lines are usually broken (A). You can cross
broken lines to turn or overtake with caution.
However, lane lines are continuous (B) close to a
controlled situation, such as traffic lights or a STOP
sign. You must not cross continuous lane lines to turn
or to overtake another vehicle. You are allowed to
cross or straddle continuous lane lines to safely pass
a cyclist. A motorcycle rider may cross continuous
lane lines when lane filtering.

safely pass a cyclist. You must not cross a
single continuous dividing line to overtake

You are allowed to cross a dividing line that
has a broken line to the left of a continuous
line to overtake a vehicle, to do a U-turn or to

has a continuous line to the left of a broken
line to enter or leave a road, or to safely pass

In each case, entering or leaving a road
