White Lines



My tiny country road now has white lines.......



I feel the urge to spray paint right over the top of them. 

 I won't because it would be wrong, and really it would take way too much spray paint. 


Civilization is creeping into my tiny hamlet.

  2. Our roads don't have white lines but they had to put double yellow down the center as people were driving on the wrong side of the roads especially on curves. It was really dangerous as they did it at high speed, almost beyond belief.

  3. It happens, and not a good thing either.

  6. In all seriousness tho....YOUR tiny country road looks to be in such beautiful, pristine, condition...UNLIKE what I have to drive over so often...filled with potholes and patching work that is uneven.

    What a pretty scene. [your road, not my potholes]

  10. Kind of strange looking, if you ask me.

  13. Hi Michelle, Wow, wonder why they did that? Could it be for those cars of the future that will drive themselves along and need a white line to follow? This is probably what your road crew calls an "improvement". Ha ha. I don't know. I agree with you ... no lines necessary. Have a good Sunday. John

  14. I would agree with you - I'll take the country road. :)

  15. At least there are center lines or stop lights! Our country road in front of our house has fog lines and center lines.. but no stop lights in our 2 little towns that we live between. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  16. Why did they want to go and ruin a good thing. I'm with you.....I like Country roads...no stripes!

  17. I guess the upside is that it will keep people from driving off the side of the road at night, but I sure do wish they would spend some more of the road money on fixing all of the pot holes before winter comes back. xo Laura

  19. I know how you feel. I drove back from work one evening last year to discover they had painted a parting line in one of the road I take to the Cottage and had a weird feeling that something was lost...

  20. Maybe it won't creep any further than the white lines....Hope you can keep Walmart out of your sweet town.

  21. But the white lines might help keep the drunks from driving into the fields at night. :-)

  22. I just hate when that happens....it's going on here too! Sheesh! Why can' they just stay away from the country? Ha!

  23. We pass a lot of homes on the way to our daughter's house, and I often make the comment that I bet they were built before they dreamed the road would ever be so busy. Hoping yours does not turn out that way.

  24. They painted new yellow lines on all our country roads. I'm not liking it either!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hmmm. I hope these white lines don't encourage motorists to drive even faster than they already do!

    ReplyDelete
  26. around here they only put a yellow line down the middle and no white ones on the outside.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, unfortunately that happens everywhere. I am surprised there is no dotted line in the middle. Sure is a great way to ruin the look of the country!!

  28. Many of the back roads in our area don't have lines of any sorts, which is a shame as it would be helpful to know where the side of the road was before hitting the ditch (literally). I think the white lines are sort of pretty in their own way.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm glad you're sparing yourself the spray paint problems. But you have to wonder what purpose those lines serve, when they don't divide any lanes...

    ReplyDelete
  30. They look fine and probably will be helpful to those less inclined to pay attention to the road at night. Still a lovely country road.

  31. We felt similar pangs when they put up huge new highly reflective yellow "curve" signs on our dirt road. Signs, signs, everywhere signs!
    Harshing our mellow.

  32. Not sure what the white lines mean in your country but It all seems a bit unnecessary for a road of this size. Maybe it's to assist drivers at night or make it "pretty as a picture". I'm sure the money spent could be put to some better use.
