Some places but not all...At least in NL you are not allowed to turn
left or make a U-turn across a solid centre line, nor are you allowed to
cross the line to overtake anything at all. Where there is an entrance
to premises to the left, there *may* be a short segment of dashed centre
line to indicate that you are allowed to turn left to reach the
premises. If the line is continuous past the entrance, you cannot cross
the line to turn left so you have to pass the premises and find
somewhere to turn around.
