Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020
Every day, around 3,500 people are killed in road accidents around the world.

West Midlands Police is supporting the UN's Decade of Action for Road Safety which launched on 11 May 2011. For more information, go to www.decadeofaction.org.
Speed Awareness workshops start in West Midlands

Motorists caught speeding in the West Midlands can now avoid getting three points on their licence in exchange for attending a short classroom education course. Speed awareness courses have been introduced by West Midlands Police to re-educate motorists and cut the region's road crash toll.

For more information about driver education visit www.ttc-uk.com or call 0845 270 4363.

What do these markings at the side of the carriageway indicate?
no stopping at any time

You are correct.
Yellow lines indicate that waiting is prohibited; red lines indicate that stopping is prohibited, even to pick up or set down passengers. A single line is used for time-limited restrictions; double lines are used if restrictions apply at all times.
