Well.... it is probably just an old street that probably hasn't been repaved in a while but here is a one lane street near downtown Raleigh, there is a solid white outer line near the school, but not elsewhere on the street.... I guess like I said before it is to keep moving cars to the left of the line and stopped cars to the right.

Pretty sure this one was repainted some time ago that has parking spaces to the side but no solid white outer line:

Perhaps it is opposite from what I thought before....

But then again you'd have to be a bad driver to be able to give someone a smashing rear end surprise in a city. Well... I guess there is not solid white outer line in the cities I have shown in this post because it is alright to use all of the road in a city, just have to watch for parked cars.

This should be a bit better.... Virginia Beach Main St, pretty nice place: https://www.google.com/maps/@36.8421439 ... 56!6m1!1e1

Usually I tend to drive through those parking spaces on a certain street in my town whenever I see them like they are not there (but then again they were not there to begin with), but in Virginia Beach.... oddly enough I wouldn't... probably same for Raleigh.

I think we may be confusing jal with two different examples of city streets.

Centrino is correct that there may or may not be solid or dotted lines on the side of city streets to mark parking spaces.

The examples I used was when the lane is immediately near the sidewalk (without parking spaces), as I mentioned/showed in both my posts.

Hope that's clear to jal. ;)

Yep.... just pay attention to Google maps... near farmland, orange dashed line in middle, no solid white outer lines. [after viewing video a few seconds in]: and then there is a solid white outer line. :?
Probably not heavily used. (first part of video is what I am talking about)

Yes here in Australia we call it the fog line also. On narrow roads at night in poor weather, sometimes it is your only visual cue where the road ends
