When the rain comes

Statistics show that wet weather and the dark is not the best mix for driving, but road markings offer a safety solution. Type II road markings increase road safety; the benefit/cost ratio of these markings in terms of road safety is very high. They have special properties intended to enhance the retroreflection in wet or rainy conditions while Type I road markings do not necessarily have such special properties. This article discusses some of the marking systems available, including: Zebra Bright road marking system technology; pavement markings; the SWARCO portfolio of road marking materials; and glass beads from Sovitec which "have an excellent retroreflection potential".
