Line Marking Perth FAQS


What is line marking?
Line marking is a method of providing members of the public with a visual guideline in many areas of their community. For example, line markings on roads provide the public with directions on where to drive, when to yield, when to give right of way, etc. Furthermore line markings are also used in various sports such as soccer to provide the players with a visual representation of, for example, where out of bounds is on the field. Lastly, without line markings, there would be no visual reference point to follow and so it would most likely cause disorganization.
