About the line for you:

Road markings are a form of signaling to guide, control traffic to improve safety and ability to drive, traffic participants need to follow the line. Line dividers are divided into two types: horizontal line and vertical line. Road markings may be used independently or may be combined with road signs or traffic signals. In cases where both the road mark and the sign have both signs, the driver must comply with the control of the signboard.


Often, people involved in road transport do not know

Road marking 1-4: A continuous yellow line with a width of 10 cm, to determine the stopping point and no parking.


Road marking 1-5: A broken line, white, width 10 cm, rate L1: L2 = 1: 3. The line is used to divide two traffic flows from two opposite directions on two or three lanes. Determination of lane boundaries when two or more lanes run in one direction.


Road markings 1-6: It is a white line, 10 cm wide. The ratio L1: L2 = 3: 1, used to signal close to the 1-1 or 1-11 lines, to divide the vehicle in the opposite direction or the same direction.

Identify and follow the line

The Ministry of Transport promulgates the Regulation on Road Signs; There is a "road marking" regulation, which is a form of road signaling to guide and control traffic to improve road safety and traffic. Line dividers are divided into two types: horizontal lines and vertical lines.

Horizontal stripes including road markings, horizontal lines, and other types of road markings. Line drawings are mostly white, except for a few yellow lines. For those who have both the sign and the sign, the driver must follow the sign. Here are some notable lines:

1. Line along the road: Include solid lines or broken lines. Stripes consist of single and double lines.

  • Vertical line Forbidding vehicles (mechanical and rudimentary) should not exceed or overlap. The vertical line is used to split the road into two directions (to and from) and to divide the road section for rudimentary vehicles with motor vehicles.
  • The double vertical line is usually at the roundabout, dangerous, and wide, straight lines, which may allow the vehicle to run at high speeds, so as to drive the vehicle up for attention and follow the rules of the vertical line, Ensure absolute safety.
    Cars running along the road with straight line should not cross the car ahead.

    Dashed line used to divide the motor vehicle lane; Division of roads for rudimentary vehicles and motor vehicles. Cars on the road with a line (along the break is allowed to cross the car ahead, but when the finish must quickly return to his road).

2. Line crossing: Contains single and double lines and can be single or double lines:

  • Straight line The "stop" sign requires all motorized vehicles to stop in front of the bar and wait for the traffic command.
    Crossing the road divides the pedestrian or bicycle path (near the intersection) into the road.
