A rural Polish town has unveiled a new glow-in-the-dark bicycle path in the hopes of curbing pedestrian and cyclist accidents at night.
Luminophore particles in the asphalt collect energy from the sun, Ruttmar told ABC News. That energy is then used at night, when the path lights up for up to 10 hours.
“It illuminates a very bright blue, which is gorgeous against the dark forest and river at night,” Ruttmar said. “The glow is a very nice complement to the area’s beautiful nature, lakes, small hills and countryside.”
