When are raised reflective pavement markers commonly required?
Raised reflective pavement markers are beneficial for traffic control and road safety in low-visibility areas. Some common uses include:
Lane Division: Raised pavement markers are commonly used to mark road lanes, helping drivers stay within their designated lanes, especially during low visibility conditions like nighttime or rain. The reflective properties of raised pavement markers make them visible to drivers, guiding them along the correct path and reducing the risk of accidental lane changes.
Centreline & Edge Marking: Raised pavement markers are often placed along the centreline of roads to help drivers stay centred within their lane. This is especially useful in preventing head-on collisions on two-lane roads. The markers can also mark the edges of the road, helping drivers avoid driving onto the shoulder or off the road.
Navigational Aid: In certain situations, such as on highways, raised markers can provide navigational cues, such as indicating upcoming curves, intersections, or exits.
Weather Conditions: Raised pavement markers are particularly valuable in adverse weather conditions, such as heavy rain or fog, when road markings may be less visible. The raised nature of the markers helps them remain visible even when covered by a thin layer of water or snow.
Traffic Calming: In some cases, these markers may be used as part of traffic calming measures, like speed reduction or warning zones.
Pedestrian Crossings: Raised pavement markers can mark pedestrian crossings, alerting drivers to the presence of pedestrians and promoting safer interactions between vehicles and pedestrians.
- Bicycle Lanes: On roads with dedicated bicycle lanes, markers can delineate the boundary between the vehicle lanes and the bicycle lanes.
We offer permanent pavement markers that can be embedded or nailed into the ground, as well as temporary markers for road work and other low-visibility work sites. Browse our collection of retroreflective raised pavement markers online.
