Yellow Lines

I see your yellow lines and raise you:

That's nice, Colin, thanks. It brings up a question about what the lines mean though. Over here, double yellow specifically means "no passing zone" and is always used in the middle of the road. It goes with single yellow (passing OK) or solid yellow paired with broken line (passing OK from broken line side). Double yellow would never be used (at least that I can ever recall seeing) at the curb.

The UK uses white lines in the centre much as you describe your central yellow lines. Yellow is reserved for parking and access restrictions. Double yellows along the kerb mean 'no waiting'. Not as fierce as no stopping. More fierce than no parking.
