Would a glow in the dark bike path make Coronation Drive safer?

Would you feel safer at night riding along a lit up blue bike path?

Poland is experimenting with glow in the dark paths in the hopes it will prevent bicycle and pedestrian accidents at night.

The bright blue path is made of a bioluminescent algae which soaks up the sun’s rays during the day and omits light at night for more than 10 hours.

We think this would drastically reduce accidents.  Cyclelaw applauds any kind of safety initiative to help our cyclists feel safe at night.

Would this bike path make you feel safer at night?
