White Lines - Longitudinal

White lines, longitudinal (parallel to traffic), are used to indicate lanes edges. A dashed white line marks a lane that can be crossed over, while a solid white line indicates a line where crossing over is either discouraged or prohibited.

A solid white line, on the right edge of the road, is used to set the limit of the "vehicular portion of the roadway", which cannot be crossed, except in the case of a BIKE LANE, where a right turn is going to be made. California law permits a driver to move into the bike lane, up to 200 feet prior to making a right turn.

At an exit ramp or street, the solid white line may join with the main highway edge line to form a "GORE" area, which is considered to be a safety zone, where vehicular traffic movement is prohibited.
