POMONA - Two sets of double yellow lines on a stretch of road in Pomona are raising fears that a serious accident could happen.

Drivers on Thiells-Mount Ivy Road trying to navigate the stretch of road are finding it confusing. The Rockland County Highway Department changed the striping by blacking out the old lines and painting new ones.

Highway Superintendent Skip Vezzetti says the harsh winter and constant use of snow plows scraped off the black paint, revealing the old set of yellow lines. Vezzetti says the original reason for the project was to improve drivers' safety because the southbound lane was narrower than the northbound lane.

Officials say now that the weather is warming up, the repainting job can take place and drivers will only have one set of lines to deal with.
