If only Alabama would do the same. They do warn you of bad roads for motorcyclists sometimes, like the Airport Rd work from Baker High to Snow Rd.

That is the only one that I have ever seen. But the idea of using a traction aid on the painted stripes is a move in the right direction.

I just hope they have the road done when I get off work today. They have been workin on it for over a year now. Crying or Very sad

Same here! I always get over onto the shoulder when I'm turning off of the highway into my neighborhood and I have learned to be very careful of that slick little white line!

I just found this thread and I'm really glad I did. It never occurred to me that those stripes might be slick when wet. Thanks for the heads up. Very Happy

you dont see it much down south, but northern states use tar filler for road cracks, frost heaves, etc.... aka Tar Snakes ( thats exactly what they look like too !)

want to talk about ass puckers when coming into a corner at a decent lean angle....

Yeah. There are roads around here that are like that. If you think its bad on a sport you should try to throw a 700-800 pound bike through a good curve like that.
