  • Heavy fog, rain or snow.
  • At sharp bends or on narrow roadways.
  • If boundary lines are covered by snow, ice, dirt or water.
  • If boundary lines are covered by objects.
  • If boundary lines are missing, worn, poorly visible, converging or diverging, or not clearly recognizable, such as when driving through construction zones.
