(e.g. A69 between Newcastle and Carlisle) interesting link / reference - they apply to a number of markings, and indicate the side the driver should go (is should compulsory or not...

White arrows on the road

I sent messages to a few who had expressed a desire to leave / do something different, I am not sure what else might work - I don't want to be posting...
