City planS
(Continued from Page 1)
-No-passing areas of such
streets will be denoted by the
addition of a solid yellow line
flanking the broken yellow line;
-Double yellow lines will 'un
down the center of multi-lane,
two-way streets;
-Traffic lanes moving in the
same direction will be separat-
ed by broken white lines, and
-Center lane/ left turn only
lanes will be marked on both
sides by broken yellow and solid
yellow lines.
In addition to the new pave-
ment paint-job, traffic signs will
receive a face-lift with a con-
tinental twist.
International symbol-signs are
being phased in and will re-
place the familiar written signs.
The new signs will be color-
coded by the nature of the mes-
sage. For example, red indi-
cates prohibited activity, green
-,permitted movements or direc-
tions, yellow - warning, orange
- construction or maintenance
warnings.
Such signs as "No Left Turn"
or "No U Turn" will be re-
placed with ones depicting the

new signs
prohibited action with a circle
and slash superimposed upon it.
For those who find these signs
rather cryptic at first, Cuendet
assures that smaller, written
"advisory signs" will be placed
underneath the new signs "un-
til reonle get educated to the
change" - about six months by
his estimation.
While the new system may
seem a rather confusing imposi-
ties on the driving public the
notice and the Traffic Engineer-
t endeTranseortation Depart-
ment feel it is a step in the
right direction.
"The states used to have dif-
ferent signs and different mark-
ings," says Corporal Arthur
H~ughea. "It used to be a white
line would mean one thing in
one state and another thing in
another."
Maybe, but tell that to the
poor driver speeding down the
highway who goes to make a left
turn and suddenly freezes, real-
izing he doesn't know where to
go or what to do. As one puzzled
motorist remarks, "It may be a
good thing, but nobody's ever
going to be able to understand
it."
