The road stud was invented by Percy Shaw in 1933. The UK native created a cat eye that featured reflective glass balls set insude rubber and cast-iron housing. The housing does not only provide reflectivety during bad lighting, but also created a sound when driven over which acts like a driver alert mechanism which can keep drivers inn their lane. The road stud industry has developed a lot over the years with the introduction if plastic, aluminium and cast iron road studs of different size and form. Recently the invention of the solar cat-eye has bought a 'new light' to the industry where 'always on' lights have meant hazardous and high accident zones areas can be well light during low light and dark times.
