In the UK, as indeed in other European countries, double yellow lines are for parking restrictions, close to the gutter, by the pavement/sidewalk. Double white lines are the equivalent "do not cross" of your double yellows. We tend to use the term "crash barrier" for anything that generically stops you from driving over the central reservation.

Good analogy though. Like it!

    Over here in Norway, we have double-yellows. That is to say, when there even are two lanes. Even on the main arteries through the fjord region, there are long stretches of single-lane twisties. I have great respect for the lorry drivers around here!
