What is the purpose of rubber posts in the road?
There are many intersections in White Plains where white arrows or solid white lines are used to establish proper lane use. Unfortunately, too many motorists ignore these road markings because it is easy to ride right over them. The physical obstruction that rubber posts present leads to much greater lane use compliance and lower accident rates. Where they can be used, there are dramatic improvements. Accidents have been reduced as much as eighty percent at some locations.
