Horizontal Curves Are Dangerous, but Even More So at Night or During Bad Weather
Crash rates at horizontal curves are three times higher than other highway segments. In addition, more than 28% of all fatal crashes were associated with horizontal curves and curved roads accounted for 90+% of run-off-road crashes. And, run-off-road crashes occur more often at night than daytime. Making roads, especially roads with curves, safer, is a must.
SolaRight’s Internally Illuminated Recessed Pavement Markers can complement other roadway marking, such as horizontal alignment, Chevron signs, curve marking, traffic signs, warning signs and pavement markings. With visibility up to ½ mile away, our lighting solutions call attention to the road’s curvature, aiding in channelization, without being a distraction.
Although you cannot put a price on a life, you can find an affordable solution to make roads safer: SolaRight accomplishes both these goals with its effective, economical lighting systems.
