white line

Hi everyone,

I've been taking driving lessons now for about four weeks with an instructor, and have just started going out on quiet roads with my dad.

My instructor told me that the white line along the side of the road is just to mark the edge of the carriageway, but my dad insists that it means the road is a clear way.

Please help,I'm really confused, who is right?

Re: white line

Simply means the edge of a carriageway.  Some counties will break the line up if the is a field entrance and some counties don't.

Yes edge of carraige way a clearway would have the no stopping sign you will see that if you look at the signs in the high way code its good that you are checking though there is no harm in asking if you are unsure.

Re: white line

Just a small correction.
A clearway will have a CLEARWAY sign not a NO STOPPING sign.

A CLEARWAY sign is a round sign with a blue background, red border with red crossed lines (like an "X"). It's meaning is no stopping at any time.

A STOP SIGN is a red octagon with white writing saying "STOP", used at some road junctions.

Re: white line

When out practising with your dad, you may get a lot of conflicting advice as things have changed over the years. Your ADI is the best person to teach you---- dad just needs to accompany you!

Thank you for your help  smile

I did try checking the highway code first, but my dad was so sure, I was worried I may have missed something  :?

Thanks again

Buy your dad a copy of the Highway code & Know your road signs, ask when was the last time he read one.. smile Plus don't miss an oppotunity to wind your dad up. Tell him you've only been drving 4 weeks and already know more than him... smile smile

Seriously though, well done. If you don't ask you don't learn, good luck..
