Why do some roads have Yellow markings while others have White ?



In India, nobody gives a damn about traffic rules ! I mean our knowledge is limited to road signboards(few 😛 ) & those traffic lights & this is the reason why there is a growth in number of road accidents. So lets just know more about traffic & road rules which might make our journey safe & sound !
