The report deals with horizontal road markings, raised pavement markers (studs) and lateral delineators, and evaluates their main characteristics. The desirable quality criteria, such as all weather visibility, skid resistance, drying time and durability, are specified for various materials; for each of the criteria a definition is given of the necessary tests, including accelerated laboratory tests and road tests. An assessment of the main economic aspects is made and the possibilities for the application of economic calculations are reviewed. Finally, present trends with regard to new developments and priority areas for future research are highlighted. (A) /TRRL/
