Fading painted highway lines a safety concern
B.C.'s Transportation Minister says she's working on the issue of fading or non existent painted lines on B.C. highways. Mary Polak says a change in federal environmental rules meant they had to change the paint they use. Polak says it's become evident that the new paint doesn't last in winter conditions. Polak says her ministry has been testing a number of possibilites as they look for solutions. CBC first raised the issue of fading highway lines this time last year.
