Glow-in-the-dark streets now possible with Pro-Teq STARPATH spray

Vyralize: Remember those glow-in-the-dark stickers you had on your walls as a kid? A company called Pro-Teq has developed a spray that can turn any street surface into one that glows at night! (Hi-tech, StarPath)

That is very cool.

Sounds environmentally safe.

What purpose does that serve worth spending MORE money on road construction for? Walking paths make some sense, but I don't see the point for roads.

You think streets are part of the natural environment?

Seems useless either way.

"You think streets are part of the natural environment?"

Do you think that justifies having ANOTHER environmentally unfriendly element ADDED? Roads are a necessity, a spray that makes it glow is not.

Man had survived a pretty long time before paved roads were ever created so I don't see the "necessity" you're claiming.
Both are related to human convenience.

Not that I'm for glowing sidewalks anyway.

Could be useful in fully wet roads on dark nights where the elderly can't see the lines on the road. Unless you just want to have a glowy road.

If your sight is so bad, you have trouble seeing the lines, it's time to give up driving anyway.

@Silent - I can attest to the fact that driving during on the night on a wet road is extremely difficult because headlights become somewhat useless due to the poor reflective surface, and my vision is not bad.

When its a newly paved road, and its raining, it can be VERY hard to the road.

This seems like a cool idea, but not necessary. Just drive slower if you are having trouble seeing.

I'm with you when it comes to environmentally unfriendly elements, but anything that can help keep idiots on the damn road's gotta be a plus.

Leave the environment alone. No one even asked for this.

this could potentially make nighttime driving safer

well, it could make anything on the road safer. may it be a car, a bike or just your feet.

As long it's not damaging to anything and easily washed away with water, I don't see why not to this fun.
