Translation, please, for those of us outside the UK :(
In the US, a solid yellow line means No Passing from the side the line is on, so double means no passing from either side. Yellow definitely has nothing to do with parking.
Yeah, yeah, except yellow curbs, which denote some time period or other. In Oregon, handicapped parking is marked with the same yellow as everything else. This threw me, because I'd always assumed "blue=handicap" was federal.
They must be a recent invention ..never saw any when I lived in the UK..even in London, where I lived on 3 separate occasions..Highway code has probably changed a lot since then..from watching TV it appears that holding mobile phones and using them whilst driving, is allowed..
Or it could be just like here in France, where the mobile phone call is the most important thing in many peoples lives, and despite their non "hands free" use being illegal while driving..99% of people appear to have their mobile phones grafted to their hands..even when driving..even seen them being used by people riding scooters and cycles..
