In many areas in the U.S. where there is little or no snow during winter, there are usually reflectors on the roads. Some areas (especially warmer climate regions) have reflectors on all roads, while some states (with more snowfall) have them on highways only.

Does your state/region/area have reflectors on the roads? If yes, on highways only or all roads?

Here in Las Vegas I know we have them on all the highways around the city like the 215 belt and on the 15 going through the city. As far as I remember we don't have them on a ton of the city streets. I'll take a look next time I'm driving around.

Atlanta has them and they're annoying when you keep riding over them. It's the only thing I miss about NY; no stupid reflectors.

I've seen them around Michigan but I forget where. I think they're mostly in rural areas where obviously there aren't any overhead lights.

In Pennsylvania, it depends on the age of the highway. All the highways that have been reconstructed since the 1990's have them, but most of those that haven't been don't. They also have to have recessed reflectors so they don't get plowed away during snowstorms. Some places have raised reflectors on the secondary roads.

In Georgia, it's raised reflectors everywhere from the Interstates to the local back roads. They all need to get replaced every spring after a snowy winter because they all get plowed away.

Most of the highways and interstates in SEPA have them. Surface roads, usually not so much. Some have reflective paint, which makes it impossible to see the lines in the rain at night.

I can't recall seeing those up here. Of course, there's nearly constant snow cover on the roads during most of the part of the year when it's really dark enough to need them. We also don't have many stretches of multi-lane highway.
