1 February 1976 Performance of High Visibility Wet-Night Highway Lane Dividers

Abstract
Fresnel reflection of most of the light from auto headlights by rain water causes highway stripes to disappear and produces a strong glare against the dark road surface on rainy nights. Battelle has developed and demonstrated the feasibility of a low-profile highway striping design that has survived snowplowing and has remained effective as a wet-night lane divider on a high-speed, high-density traffic thruway.
