Reflecting on safety

I was excited to hear about a new kind of reflective material being used to make traffic lines on roads easier to see.

Road safety is always a big issue for people, especially seniors. So anything the government of B.C. can do that increases road safety is obviously a good thing and something we should be looking at.

That’s why I was excited to hear about a new kind of reflective material being used to make traffic lines on roads easier to see. Apparently, it actually shines your headlights’ beams back at you.

I haven’t seen these new reflective lines myself, but friends who have, on the Sea-to-Sky Highway, tell me they’re really helpful and even work well on a dark, rainy night.

I don’t know why nobody thought of doing this sooner, but it sure is a good idea and I would love to see the same thing done on the Island Highway.
