Futuristic European Highways

The Dutch super highway that will debut in mid-2013 is a hi-tech transit mission using light and temperature road markings for easier travel.

The futuristic concept will save energy and will dramatically improve road safety. Glow in the dark road markings made of photo luminescent paint will light up the highway. They will charge from the sun during the day and provide safe road conditions for night-time drives. Other fantastic perks include pin wheel energy sources, road strips to charge electric cars and temperature road paint that will illuminate when cold weather increases and will warn drivers of slippery conditions.

The Dutch super highway is a genius idea and will assuredly save energy and countless lives on the road.
