SIGN REFLECTIVITY

 
Dave LeviDave Levi, Program Manager for The NDLTAP and The Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute, was a guest speaker at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the NDTOA held in Jamestown, ND on December 7 & 8, 2009. His presentation was an update on the sign reflectivity law passed by Congress which could cost ND townships $60 million. This program was implemented in January 2008 and began the 7 year process of bringing into compliance our regulatory warning, and guide signs. By the year 2015 all signs must meet the new federal reflectivity standards.

Start today by inspecting your signs for retroflectivity. Document when you replace your signs. Are your signs visible during nighttime driving?

A few facts:

Night crashes occur at a rate three times higher than day time crashes.

28 percent of all vehicle miles traveled are on rural, non interstate, roads. Yet, 52% of all fatalities occur on the rural roads. 25 percent of travel occurs at night. And 50% of fatal crashes happen during the nighttime hours.
