As the popularization of solar road studs on roads throughout the world, the traffic conditions have been improved a lot at night. But there are some main problems arising which weaken the function of solar road studs as follows:

First, the shell is not compressive. Second, reflector sheds and is fractured easily. Third, reflector doesn’t resist abrasion.
(1) The shell of the road studs is not compressive at all.
(2) Reflector sheds and can be fractured easily. The reflector will be easily damaged because of its hollow interior structure.
(3Reflector can not bear abrasion and will lose the reflective effect.

Snow plows? You mean the equipment for removing snow? NH must have heavy snow every year since you have to use snow plows.
Hehe, we are using road studs in the middle or the two sides of the road for guiding the drivers at night. No need for us to use snow plows here cause we seldom meet a snowy day...
