  • White square marks on the road

    Noticed evenly space white squares and sometimes white points on the side of the road.

    Saw them between Albany Hwy and Boddington, apparently there are more.

    Is it, as it has been suggested by workmates, to give reference for drones or what ever to ping speeders?

    I thought they were road accident markers or indicators for roadworks but more likely alien abduction pick up points..

      Telephone access points, aka those concrete sink well things

      Water valves on pipeline not far away?

              I found it curious why anybody recently would have gone to the trouble and grind a little square out of the road and paint it white every 200 or 300 metres. It appears to be evenly spaced with nobody around in need for phones or anything I don't think.

              Drones or regular little planes with constables operating a stop watch would not have been my first guess but they would probably pay for themselves quite quickly.

                  They used to have marks on the road at a few places in Victoria that were used as timing markers for a spotter plane to time cars across and ping for speeding. There were some on the coast road down the Mornington Peninsula and some on the Hume I think. However I'm pretty sure that practice went out of fashion a very long time ago.

                  How big, how far apart and on what sort of road are they? They might be points to drop lights on to land an RFDS plane on the hwy.

                    15cm square in the middle of each lane of semi windy, two lane road. Markers are in corners too. I would probably avoid landing a plane there because it's hilly and there is trees. Every couple of squares there is dots on both outsides. They go all along that stretch of road 8 km along.

                      This. Not sure about the RFDS, but would make sense.

                      Used to see them a lot driving across the nullabor.

                      Lol at tin-foil-hat comments. Naive much?

                        fire hydrant? check power poles adjacent for red band or H symbol....
                        Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                        when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                          There is still a set of aerial speed check marks on the road between Rockingham and Mandurah.

                            They are braking markers.
