Dutch design company Studio Roosengaarde and Hejimans Infrastructure are on the path of designing super smart highways. Highways that will have built-in icons that show drivers what the road conditions are (like icicles icons for when it's freezing - see photo below), lights that go on when there are vehicles (off when there are none) and electric car & motorcycle charging lanes. But the one thing I will sign up for is...

Roadside smart graphics

.... glow in the dark lines on the roads. Roads currently have reflective painting, but although they work, they are not really effective. Glow in the dark will work no matter how good your lights are. Motorcycles usually only have one light, in contrast with cars that have 2, so using reflective lines we only get half the reflective "power. With glow in the dark, you'll not even need to have your lights on.

Glow in the dark road

The lines charge during the day with sunlight, just like our toys when we were young. Then during the night they glow. Nifty. Can we please have it...
