RANT: Road Line Paint

Postby turtle on Tue Dec 08, 2015 3:57 pm

I know I'm getting older, but am I the only one who has a hard time seeing the lines on the road when it's raining like it was this morning. :-(

I don't know why they don't make the paint reflective or put in reflectors on the lines. I can't see them very well either.

completely agree, and it's even worse in areas where they have pulled up the lines and repainted the road, i can't tell what is line and what isn't some nights when it's dark and rainy

Glad I'm not the only one noticing this.

I drive the Mt. Doug/Cordova Bay road from our place to Commonwealth Pool 3-4 x/week and at night, esp. when it's been raining or is raining, it's so hard to see and it's very scary for me to drive it. They should paint it with the reflective paint like five-seven-five suggested. safer for everyone.

Guess it's not just me. Last night I watched a car drive down Gorge Road in the 2-way left turn lane from Harriet to Washington.

My husband and I fully support this rant. We've been thinking the exact same thing.

Thought is was just me and my "advancing age" but it seems that reflective paint, renewed in a regular time frame would be of benefit.
