Transverse - Traffic Calming

Many suburban areas, especially, are using "traffic calming" measures, to slow traffic without actually stopping it. One of the most common is the "SPEED HUMP". To warn drivers of the speed hump, white transverse lines, of decreasing width, are evenly spaced 100 feet prior to the center of the hump.

Another line used to slow traffic is the newer YIELD LINE. Instead of the usual LIMIT LINE, a transverse line, consisting of white triangles, is used to indicate where traffic should slow down (and stop if necessary) when yielding to vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
