sprayable glow in the dark material... why aren't roads coated with this, or the center lines, or the guard rails, or the side lines?

The coating is applied in three layers, with a middle aggregate stage that absorbs UV energy during the day, which is then released as a blue glow when it's dark.

 It's kind of like a high-tech version of those glow in the dark stickers you put on the walls of your room when you were a kid. Manufacturer Pro-Teq Surfacing sees Starpath as a way for municipalities to save money, by replacing costly electric pathway lighting with the low-maintenance coating. Installing the surface takes only a few hours, leaving a durable coating that's slip and rain resistant.
