Waynesboro needs to do something to prevent head-on collisions especially at night, until such time as the roadway marking fiasco is corrected. Physical barriers on the yellow line are absolutely essential.

I would recommend that folks ride through at night to see what I am talking about but it is too dangerous to do so.

The joint sealant material used here makes the joints appear as white lines.

I inspected road construction for 35 years in MD and this is absolutely the worst roadway marking abomination that I have ever seen.

Mr Scholar, you sir are 100% correct, the joint sealer relects more light than the lane marking paint. Worse in the rain or snow.

I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me.

Of course the fancy Victorian lighting downtown, although pretty, doesnt cast enough light onto the street to allow good visibility either.
