ROAD SURFACES AS A SOURCE OF CHANGES OF ROAD LIGHTING QUALITY

Design and evaluation of road lighting are based on the assumption that road surface reflection properties are alike over the whole of the road. During use reflection properties of various areas of road surface change because damaged places are repaired with materials different from the original road surface, local deformations arise etc. This work presents the methods and results of studies aimed at finding out how common these phenomena are and whether they lead to substantial changes of road lighting performance parameters and visibility conditions on the road.
