    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message.

    Is it just me or is there something off about the new traffic lines they painted going up to Valencia going around the turns before Pito's? Double yellow lines (meaning no passing) on both sides of the road with a solid white line splitting the two lanes in the center....then it immediately goes back to yellow line in the center with white lines on the outside of the lanes after the curve.

    I can't remember ever seeing that in the West (or in the Philippines). It seems wrong.

    I believe the double solid yellow also indicates you are not allowed to stop. In this case I think they are saying, no stopping on the side of the road.

    2:15 of this LTO video. The picture doesn't exactly match the verbiage but I think this might be what your lines might be there to say.

    I thought they meant no passing in either direction. But they are not splitting traffic moving in different directions....they are splitting traffic moving in the same direction. Yellow lines are almost always reserved for the center line, not the outside one way lanes, those should be white.

    A possible explanation here might simply have to do with the amount of available paint in each colour :smile:

    This is so very informative. Now I understand why when I start to walk across a pedestrian crossing here every single vehicle stops immediately. That is the law. :smile:

    Imagine a situation in which no-one stopped!!! Chaos and immediate attendance of the police standing nearby.

    Not being there to see the lines, I might not have understood your description of there placement on the road. Would a long semi truck with a large tactrix be able to maintain there lane through the curve?

    If no one obeys the lines, no one enforces the lines, are they really there? I've never actually seen a bear :poop: in the woods so maybe that's not true either:wacky:.
