Have you ever been driving on the highway and noticed all the markings on the ground? Of course, you have. These markings make driving safe by labeling roads correctly. But how do they get there? Through the use of extremely specialized machinery.

In this video, we bring you six of these specialized devices, allowing you to see them in action. There are autonomous road marking vehicles that can travel at speeds of up to 3.1 miles per hour (5 km/h).

There are self-propelled machines that employ laser line guiding to ensure quick machine alignment and extremely efficient devices that can spray two colors at the same. 

These are but a few of the road marking machines we bring you in our video. We showcase plenty more for your enjoyment and dare you not to be impressed by how efficiently and speedily they work.
