Horizontal markings

Horizontal markings (lines, arrows, inscriptions and other markings on the carriageway) establishes specific regimes and the order of the movement.

Horizontal marking may be permanent or temporary. Permanent markings are white, except for lines 1.4, 1.10 and 1.17 of yellow colors, and temporary - orange color.

1.1 - separates the transport flow of opposite directions and indicates the boundaries of traffic lanes in dangerous places on the roads; indicates the boundaries of the carriageway on which entry is forbidden; indicates the boundaries of parking places of vehicles;

1.2.1 (solid line) - indicates the edge of the carriageway;

1.2.2 (dotted line, in which the length of the strokes is 2 times shorter the gaps between them) - indicates the edge of the carriageway on the two lane roads;

1.3 - separates the transport flows of opposite directions on the roads, with four lanes and more;

1.4 - designates the place where stopping is prohibited. It is applied independently or in combination with sign 3.27  and is applied at the edge of the carriageway or on top of the border;

1.5 - separates the transport flow of opposite directions on the road, having two or three lanes; denotes the boundary lines of lane for movement in the presence of two or more lanes, intended for movement in the same direction;

1.6 (line of approchment - dotted line, in which the length of the strokes, 3 times exceeds the intervals between them) - warns of approaching the markup 1.1 or 1.11, which divides the transport flow of the opposite or the  same direction;

1.7 (dashed line with short strokes, and equal to them intervals) - indicates the traffic lanes within an intersection area;

1.8 (wide dashed line) - marks the boundary between the acceleration or deceleration and the main lane of roadway (on the intersections, junctions on different levels, in the area of bus stops and the like);

1.9 - indicates the boundary lines of the lane, in which the reversive movement is carried out; separates the transport flow of opposite directions (when reversing lights are off) on the roads, where the reverse regulation is carried out;

1.10 - indicates places where parking is prohibited. Ii is applied independently or in combination with sign 3.28  and is applied at the edge of the carriageway or on top of the border;

1.11 - separates the transport flow of opposite or same directions on the roads, where lane changing is allowed only from one lane; indicates the place intended for U turn, entry and exit from the parking or bus stop areas and the like, where the traffic is allowed only in one direction;

1.12 (stop line) - indicates the location where the driver should stop when there is sign 2.5  or on the forbidding signal of a traffic light (controller);

1.13 - indicates the location where the driver shall, when necessary, stop for giving way to vehicles moving on the cross road.

1.14.1, 1.14.2 ("zebra") - indicates a pedestrian crosswalk; arrows of markup 1.14.2 indicate the direction of movement of pedestrians;

   

1.15 - indicates the place where the bike path crosses the roadway;

1.16.1, 1.16.2, 1.16.3 - indicates guiding directional islands in the places of division or merge of transport flows;

       

1.17 - indicates the fixed-route vechile stop (bus stop) and taxi stop;

1.18 - indicates the permitted at the crossroads direction of traffic movement on the lanes. It is applied independently or in combination with signs 5.15.1 , 5.15.2 ; the marking with the image of the no-pass-through is applied to indicate that a turn on the nearing road is prohibited; the marking, which allows turning on the right on the rightmost lane, permits U turn as well;

1.19 - warns about the approach to narrowing of the carriageway (areas where the number of traffic lanes in this direction are reduced) or to the lines of markup 1.1 or 1.11 separating transport flow of opposite directions. In the first case the markup 1.19 can be used in conjunction with signs 1.20.1- 1.20.3;

1.20 - warns of approaching the markup 1.13;

1.21 (the inscription "STOP") - warns of approaching the markup 1.12, when it is used in combination with sign 2.5 ;

1.22 - specifies the number of the road (route);

1.23 - indicates a special lane for fixed-route transport vehicles;

1.24.1 - 1.24.3 - duplicates the corresponding road signs, and is used in conjunction with them;

       

1.25 - indicates the artificial roughness on the roadway.

Crossing the lines 1.1, 1.2.1, 1.3 is prohibited.

Line 1.2.1 is allowed to cross to stop the vehicle at the roadside and for entry from it, in the places, where stopping or parking is permitted.

Line 1.2.2, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 is allowed to be crossed from any side.

Line 1.9 in the absence of a reverse traffic lights or when they are switched off, is allowed to cross, if it is located to the left of the driver; when reversing traffic lights are switched on - from any side, if it shares the lane, on which traffic is allowed in the same direction. When the reverse traffic lights are switched off, the driver shall immediately take the lane to the left of the line markup 1.9.

Line 1.9 separating the transport flow of opposite directions, is prohibited to cross when the reversive traffic lights are off.

Line 1.11 is allowed to cross from the intermittent side, but from the side of the continious, only if at the end of overtaking or detours.

In cases when the values of road signs, including temporary (placed on the portable support), and lines of horizontal markings contradict each other or marking is not visible enough, drivers must be guided by the road signs. In cases when the temporary road marking lines and lines of constant markup contradict each other, drivers should follow the lines of the temporary road marking.
