I'm also not from around here originally, but those tend to be for
"soft" lane markers.  They're usually on the ground in situations where
two cars could pass by each other if going slowly enough.  Usually
people drive with one wheel right on top of the things until they need
to worry about oncoming traffic or some other obstacle.
