White Lines - Transverse

White transverse lanes lines (perpendicular to traffic flow) are used to indicate stopping, yielding, and cautionary areas, where traffic is controlled for one reason or another.

In the picture to the left, the end of the YELLOW line coincides with the thicker white tranverse line where stopping in mandatory. This is called the STOP LINE, or more commonly, the LIMIT LINE. All traffic must stop with the complete vehicle behind this line.

Where there is no limit line, the double white transverse lines indicate a crosswalk, and traffic must stop completely behind the first crosswalk line (when stopping is mandated by a light or sign).
