A road marking on the surface of a road applies to a person on the road unless the position of the road marking indicates that it does not apply to the person.
Examples :1 If a driver is driving on a road that is not a multi-lane road or one-way road, a road marking to the right of the centre of the road does not apply to the driver.2 If a driver is driving in a marked lane of a multi-lane road, a road marking in another marked lane does not apply to the driver.3 At an intersection, or on a roundabout, road markings indicating the edge of a marked lane for use by traffic coming from another direction do not apply to the driver.
Note 1 :
"Road marking" is defined in the Dictionary.
Note 2 : A person may, under another rule, be exempt from complying with particular road markings--see, for example, rules 134, 138, 139, 147 and 150.
