NCLGA Executive Recommendation: Endorse

Details

WHEREAS the premature deterioration of low-durability road marking paint, particularly as it affects highway centre-line and shoulder marker lines, places the safety of British Columbia drivers and passengers at significant risk;

AND WHEREAS the annual program to re-paint highway markings must be significantly accelerated to make our roads and highways safer sooner;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Province of British Columbia be requested to improve the durability and reflectivity standards of road marking paint so it will endure effectively through the entire winter driving season to improve road safety, particularly for BC’s northern and interior drivers and passengers:

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the North Central Local Government Association urges the Province of British Columbia to accelerate the annual road and highway marking re-painting program, with improved durable and reflective paint to make BC’s roads and highways safer sooner.
