Why Do Some Roads Have White Markings While Others Have Yellow Ones?
 
In India, a lot of us never bother to care about the traffic rules because who gives a damn about road safety. For most of us, traffic rules begin and end at memorizing what those red, yellow and green lights are for. Road safety is a major concern in India. So let's just try and keep ourselves informed about the little things that might make our drive safe and smooth.

Broken white line



Broken white lines indicate that you are allowed to change lane, but with caution. So you may change lane, if it is safe to do so.
