  • Transport Operations (Road Use Management-Road Rules) Regulation 2009 (Current as at 31 March 2017).

Single Vs Double Solid White Lines

There are a few ways the center line markings can be used to indicate what rules are relevant when it comes to turning and overtaking. Some quieter, less used roads don't have a line at all, more frequented roads have a dotted or broken center line.

In this article we will be looking at the difference between a Single Solid White Line and Double Solid White Lines. Do you know the difference?

Lanes Turning

When you are turning right into a road with two or more lanes there are things which determine which lane you should turn into.

In this article we will look at which lane(s) you can choose from and how to know when that changes.

Speeding is one of the more dangerous things we can do on the road. Not because speed itself causes collisions, but it makes any small mistake bigger and any collision more severe.
