Road markings are the silent custodians of road safety in this era of four and six lane highways. Markings signify the delineation of traffic path and the lateral clearance from traffic hazard for the safe, smooth and orderly movement of traffic. Apart from traffic guidance, they also serve as a tool for controlling, warning and providing information to road users. Though the cost of road markings is fractional in comparison to the cost of the road, its importance is indisputable. Often a key parameter used to judge the road quality is the quality of the installed road marking.
