The innovative product was created to increase the protection of cyclists, but it might as well check it in improving the visibility of pedestrians.

Volvo Life Paint This event promotional campaign (cans were distributed for free on the London bike shops), but the Swedish brand does not preclude the introduction of reflective tape and fluorescent spray paint for sale in their showrooms. It can already be purchased via the website of the manufacturer, the company Albedo100.

Today, the first test piece of asphalt is placed on the provincial road N980. Researchers want to know if the material after use still reduces noise and ensures a saving on the lighting.
If silent asphalt can be combined with reflective element material, which not only saves energy but also reduces rutting?

Light color
