Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) is committed to supplying residents with information relating to road safety. Council through it’s Road Safety Officer (RSO), run a number of Road Safety initiatives and programs throughout the year.

Council has now added a page to the CGRC Website – Know Your Road Rules. The page has links to videos clips, the Top 10 misunderstood road rules in NSW, and a host of information on Dividing Lines.

One subject, crossing a double dividing line, outlines what is allowable, which has caused some confusion amongst residents.

Information supplied by TfNSW at this link: Road lines and markings | NSW Government

Double dividing line:

You can cross double unbroken lines to enter or leave the road by the shortest route.

Road with double unbroken dividing line

Unbroken & broken dividing lines:

 You can cross double lines with a broken line close to you to:

  • overtake another vehicle
  • make a U-turn
  • enter or leave the road
  • angle park on the opposite side of the road (without making a U-turn).
