  2. Although zebras are not always seeing crossing the road in most of our roads but those lines drawn on major of our roads simply means that motorists must stop or slow down for pedestrians to cross the road. That is the main purpose of zebra crossing

That is one of the reasons that motorists and drivers should not exceed the appropriate or recommended speed limit. The speedometer is always there to help us to monitor our speed limit when we are driving
