Local agencies can borrow the equipment for a period of up to two weeks. There is no rental fee, but borrowing agencies are responsible for shipping and insurance costs.

Anyone using the retroreflectometer must sign and adhere to a loan agreement, and view a training video prior to using the equipment.
