White diagonal stripes or chevron road markings. 30/01/14

It's always a good idea refresh your road knowledge from time-to-time.

We have all seen them on our roads, but what do diagonal stripes or chevron markings mean?

These markings are used to separate traffic lanes or to protect traffic turning right.

  • If the area is bordered by a broken white line, you should not enter the area unless it is necessary and you can see that it is safe to do so

  • If the area is marked with chevrons and bordered by solid white lines you MUST NOT enter it except in an emergency
