Traffic Advisory for the Week of August 24-30

Road Safety Reminder for the Week

PAVEMENT MARKINGS

Pavement markers should indicate to the driver:

  1. Where on the roadway he should be driving.
  2. Where his visibility ahead is limited and passing is restricted.
  3. Where he can expect traffic in the adjacent lane to be going in the opposite direction.
  4. Where he may safely wait for an opportunity to make a left turn.

The COLOR of the lines tells the motorist instantly whether he is on a one-way or two-way road:

  • Yellow lines are used to divide roads with two-way traffic.
  • White lines divide lanes or roadways where the traffic is going in the same direction.

On Guam, small reflective markers are used more than paint to indicate these pavement markings, since paint does not last long.

According to Guam’s Traffic Violation Bureau’s (TVB) Traffic Fine Schedule

GCA (Guam Code Annotated) Code Description Eff. 01/01/14
3310 Driving in Right Hand Lane $80.00
