The Netherlands is testing glow-in-the-dark lanes along one of their highways. The green paint is charged by daylight, allowing it to glow at night. The lanes are ”clearer than existing cat’s eye reflective spheres.”

Currently, the green lines are used to mark the street lanes, reducing the need to use street lamps to light the road. Netherlands hopes to use the lines to mark cycle lanes soon. And the UK wants to test this unique approach to safety for bicyclists next. The glow-in-the-dark lines could help bicyclists and drivers travel at night in a safe way, which is great strategy.

What do you think about these bike lane demarcations? Wouldn’t it look cool in White Flint?
