    Note the lack of a yellow centre line, due to it being worn out by people driving over the line constantly.

    Note the fading white dashed lines put there after the last accident on that corner some months ago involving three cars.

    The lines aren’t suggestions of where you should drive when going around that corner. Stay in your lane.

    I have seen motorcyclists round corner like a bat of hell. I hope this is not the case.
