Is this a "double yellow line"?

In the City of Fremont:



I'm asking about the Bott's dots. The other yellow line is an artifact of Google Earth.

If I was riding in that area I would treat it as a double yellow. that is just how I would do it but not sure if it is legally defined that way.

Yep, that's considered a double-yellow. The dots simply replace the painted lines - they're supposed to last longer.

EDIT - sorry, not a LEO

(b) If double parallel solid white lines are in place, a person driving a vehicle shall not cross any part of those double solid white lines, except as permitted in this section or Section 21655.8.

(c) If the double parallel lines, one of which is broken, are in place, a person driving a vehicle shall not drive to the left of the lines, except as follows:

(1) If the driver is on the side of the roadway in which the broken line is in place, the driver may cross over the double lines or drive to the left of the double lines when overtaking or passing other vehicles.

(2) As provided in Section 21460.5.

(d) The markings as specified in subdivision (a), (b), or (c) do not prohibit a driver from crossing the marking if (1) turning to the left at an intersection or into or out of a driveway or private road, or (2) making a U-turn under the rules governing that turn, and the markings shall be disregarded when authorized signs have been erected designating offcenter traffic lanes as permitted pursuant to Section 21657.

(e) Raised pavement markers may be used to simulate painted lines described in this section if the markers are placed in accordance with standards established by the Department of Transportation.
Looks to be.

Thank you.

There was a passer-vs-passee crash here, motorcycle passing, passee turning left into driveway. While it was not sensible place to overtake, a factor cited was "passing where prohibited..." and I wondered if that was accurate.

I don't know how it is in California but I have found out that here in LA it is incumbent on the person making the left to make sure that it is clear before making the left turn even from people behind you if turning onto a non-state maintained roadway so house driveways and maybe even business entrances fall under this law.

Had someone get hit by a person from the end of long line of cars passing on the other side and the guy making the left got hit and they cited him for not making sure it was clear to make the turn so he was found to be at fault. I don't know if the double yellow would have trumped his not making sure it was clear but I guess you could make the argument they weren't supposed to be passing in the first place.
