Is it just me or is the quality of the paint they use for lane markings on highways pretty lousy these days? They sprayed all the yellow and white lines and markings along the main drag in Reed City last summer and the stuff is barely visible now and almost worn away. I suspect the environmental whacko crowd has something to do with the sudden inferior quality of the material. Either that or the counties are just cheaping out.

I agree and just had that exact conversation last night. I wouldn't be surprised if the EPA screwed with the paint. Some unattended child playing on an interstate somewhere in the county ate some road paint?(or a turtle)

Now you know why the turtles were trying to cross the road...they love to munch on the paint chips.

Just like everything. Bought from the lowest bidder regardless of quality.

Spend a little less for paint and spend more later doing it over.

Look at it this way they are providing jobs for road painters, but using cheaper paint.

Chinese lead paint? That could explain why you often see 5 road commission guys standing around leaning on shovels or just sitting in their trucks. A lead induced stupor?
