Why are the different colored lines drawn on the road?

It is a well-known fact that motorists must follow the rules of the road. There are a variety of rules of the road, such as wearing a helmet, going to the left of the line on the road, not using a cell phone while traveling, and having a vehicle document, driver’s license, etc.

But many people do not know what it means to have different lines across the road. Here we will see why such lines are drawn. If there is a zebra crossing across the road, pedestrians can use it to cross the road. Similarly, the rule is that vehicles should go slowly to the place where the zebra crossing is.

If a long white line is drawn in the middle of the road with no gaps, it means that you should not go fast in that area and overtake the oncoming vehicle. If white lines are left in the middle of the road, it means that left-handed motorists can come to the right and carefully overtake the oncoming vehicle.

If a yellow line is drawn in the middle of the road for a long time it means that it is a low light area and if necessary it can safely overtake the oncoming vehicle.If two yellow lines are drawn long it means that the area is a very dangerous area and do not try to overtake the oncoming vehicle in that area.
