I did say I risked being parochial in my assumptions :-)

In the UK road markings are also traffic signs and an upright sign does
not necessarily take precedence. For example, the give way transverse
road marking (= = = = =) is required whether the red inverted triangle
upright sign is present or not. Failure to comply with either is an offence.

More of a headache than I imagined.
