Yellow and white road markings

Road markings warn and inform users of approaching situations that will require them to take some form of action, such as stop or give way lines.

Yellow road markings are used where there is a need to restrict parking to help increase traffic flow and prevent obstructions on the highway. They are applied in conjunction with a Traffic Regulation Order.

Single and double yellow lines indicate that parking restrictions are in place and that no waiting is allowed at any time.

Yellow lines apply from the centre of the road to the boundary of the highway and includes footpaths and verges alongside the yellow. This means that you cannot park on the pavement or a verge alongside a yellow line.

If your vehicle is parked illegally on a single or double yellow line, you may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
