Yellow Line Fever (painting, that is)

The line painting trucks will be out July 26 painting new double yellow lines on River Road and Franklin Hill Road. Please obey directions not to cross these lines while still wet. The lines will look a lot better on the road than on your tires. Of course the big problem is getting people not to cross the double yellow line when they are dry. A popular folk myth in Pennsylvania says that it is okay to cross a double yelllow line if you hae assured yourself the road is clear ahead. But the PA Driver's Manual is quite clear: "A double, solid yellow centerline shows the center of a two- way road. Even if it is not marked with a NO PASSING sign, passing by traffic traveling in either direction is not allowed on roads marked in this manner."
