COLORED HIGHWAYS IN CHINA
Currently there are two highways painted in colors. one is from Zhengzhou to Luoyang. and another is Chongqing city ring road.
expert says that the colored highways have an higher visibility in rain or fog weather,and be able to reduce the frictional noise, prevent drivers fall into sleep, of course there are beautiful.

How come it is colored like that? "Photoshop" is the first word that passed through my mind , but it would be really cool if it was real!

Painting the emergency lane red (or any other color than the rest), or using different colored asphalt can definitely help a lot during night time. It would be a good thing to use such techniques in Europe also.

No, because some countries use red to show what the bicycle paths are. It would be confusing. If you can't see the difference between a driving lane and an emergency lane, you're not supposed to drive.

WOW! That should how our highways be built! I'm so bored of common dark gray asphalt! We need these colors so that drivers will not be kept from falling asleep.
