Lane markings make a considerable contribution to traffic safety. They constitute an important orientation aid for road users, particularly in the dark and in wet conditions. However, this is only the case if they comply with the specifications governing their traffic-related properties.
For the purposes of quality assurance, the traffic-related properties of lane markings are checked in accordance with the specifications of the Additional Technical Conditions of Contract for Road Markings (ZTV-M 13) during and after application and before expiry of the prescribed period for claims under warranty.
Traffic Data Systems has been recognised by the German Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) as a test centre for lane markings (No. F 01 00, Stage 1 and 2) and offers the services listed in the table below in this regard. The work is carried out by a neutral and independent publicly appointed and sworn expert.
