stop lines
white lines painted across the pavement at intersections indicating the exact places to stop. In urban areas the line is usually located about four feet before the crosswalk. Drivers must come to a complete stop at the stop line, when present, not at the stop sign or traffic signal.
crosswalk lines
these white lines are painted across, or partially across the pavement. When pedestrians are in the crosswalks, they have the right of way over motor vehicles. Crosswalks are sometimes in the middle of a block in residential areas, and in some cases, a pedestrian crossing signal is located at the white line.
railroad crossings and crossbucks
in the front of railroad crossings, the pavement is sometimes marked with a large X and two RRs. This is known as a crossbuck. At railroad crossings a yellow line is always placed on the right side of the center line to prevent passing. The crossing is sometimes equipped with control arms and/or emergency lights, to warn drivers of approaching trains. The driver of the vehicle must stop if warning signals say a train is approaching.
GA Code Section 40-6-96
No pedestrians shall pass through, around, over, or under any crossing gate or barrier at a railroad grade crossing or bridge while such gate or barrier is closed or is being opened or closed.
center lines
these are used to separate traffic moving in opposite directions on paved roadways. Broken yellow lines are used when there are only two lanes.
no passing lines
these are the single, solid yellow lines on two lane roads which indicate zones where passing is prohibited. These single, solid yellow lines will be located on the right of the broken yellow line when they apply to you.
these are the solid white lines along the side of the pavement. They serve as safety guides, especially at night when it is difficult to see the edge of the road. A yellow edge line may be used on the left side to warn of narrow or raised medians.
lane lines
these are the white dashes which divide streets and highways having more than one lane for traffic moving in the same direction. When there are four or more lanes with traffic moving in opposite directions, two solid yellow lines mark the center of the roadway. You may cross these lines only to make a left turn into or from an alley, private road, driveway, or other street.
turn lanes
solid yellow and broken yellow; at center of streets and highways to make left turns; vehicle desiring to turn left should proceed to the trn lane just prior to making left turn. Georgia law prohibits the use of this lane for any other purpose than making a left turn. You may enter this lane no more than 300 feet from the location of the left turn.
traffic striping
diagonal yellow lines; on streets and highways; indicate that the road is narrowing or there is an obstruction on the roadway. The area is similar to a triangle with solid yellow diagonal lines within the outside lines. Always keep to the right of these markings.
