Seeing traffic lines

Road safety is always a big issue for people, especially our seniors

To the editor;

Road safety is always a big issue for people, especially our seniors. So anything the Government of BC 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 headlight’s beam 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.
