Line Paint Claims

All claims are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and not all claims are honored as it is the vehicle operators’ responsibility to operate their vehicle within the roadway lines and follow all warning and advisory signage. With line-painting operations being weather-sensitive, they are conducted to provide the most cost-effective way of painting lines with the least disruption for the motoring public.

Note: When filing a claim, you will be required to provide the date, time, county, state route number, and area of the occurrence.
