Retroreflectivity – The LatestAbstract:
The AASHTO Board of Directors recently recommended a change in Section 406 of the present law regarding establishment of minimum retroreflectivity values for signs and pavement markings. This would then remove the requirement of FHWA having to establish retroreflectivity values for both signs and markings. The Board recommends that in its place, agencies establish a management program to review these devices with an official process to maintain good sign and pavement marking for the driving public. AASHTO believes that this process could avoid the Tort Liability issues of having to maintain a certain level of retroreflectivity for both signs and markings.
