44. Roadway Reflectors and Lighting

Roadways should be designed for safe use with minimal lighting. Instead of extensively lighting the roadways using lights on tall poles, lighting should be more strategically located on important and significant roadway features. Greater use of reflectors, glow-in-the-dark paints and other highly visible materials could provide safe navigation under lower lighting conditions.

Missing roadway reflectors should be replaced within a week of being noticed missing or defective.

For further safety, greatly increased emphasis would be placed by law enforcement on the proper functioning and maintenance of all automobile/vehicle lights.
