Pavement Markings

Markings set into the surface of, applied upon, or attached to the pavement for the purpose of regulating, warning, or guiding traffic.

Lane Markings Pavement lane markings are another form of traffic control that provides instructions to motorists. Road markings guide and warn drivers as well as regulate traffic. Markings may be either yellow or white. They may be used alone or in combinations. Each has a different meaning.


Crosswalk – A crosswalk or pedestrian crossing is a designated point on a road at which some means are employed to assist pedestrians wishing to cross. They are designed to keep pedestrians together where they can be seen by motorists, and where they can cross most safely across the flow of vehicular traffic. Pedestrian crossings are often found at intersections, but may also be at other points on busy roads that would otherwise be too unsafe to cross without assistance due to vehicle numbers, speed or road widths. They are generally also installed common where large numbers of pedestrians are attempting to cross (such as in shopping areas) or where vulnerable road users (such as school children) regularly cross.

Stop Bar – A stop bar or stop line is a solid white pavement marking line extending across approach lanes to indicate the point at which a stop is intended or required to be made.
