Skid resistance is vital in keeping people safe on our roads especially in wet road conditions. Skid resistance is where the surface of road is textured. If you’re driving, it helps you keep your vehicle on the road and stop more easily when braking.

To support other safety infrastructure, further skid resistance improvements may be needed where braking commonly occurs, such as on the approaches to intersections, roundabouts, pedestrian crossings and on bends or steep grades to help reduce crashes.
