|Characteristics of a Road Marking
As drivers we take the humble white line for granted, until it's not there that is. Road markings provide guidance in the dark and wet, they separate the traffic and they tell us where to go (quite literally), they are widely acknowledged to improve road safety at a fraction of the cost of many technology driven 'road safety solutions.
The road marking characteristics are as follows;
1) Reflection in daylight or under road lighting
2) Retroreflection under vehicle headlamp illumination
4) Skid Resistance
