I know of boat owners that painted their decks white only to discover the deck was cooler, but anyone standing on it and absorbing the reflected heat wasn't.    Painting streets white simply makes the street surface cooler, and does nothing to make heat leave the planet.  Pseudo science is alive and well.....  Tom

                       Stephen, I refuse to buy into the nonsense that mankind is responsible for "global warming." The New York Times has been pushing that lie since Abe Lincoln was President. In 1922, the Washington Post ran a scare story about how we would all suffer if we didn't keep the planet cool. Here's the URL<http://www.foxnews.com/story/2007/08/14/washington-dc-resident-finds-122-article-showing-early-signs-climate-change.html> 
                 I seem to gather from the piece below that LA's streets are crumbling. Take it from me (Western Pennsylvania's got some of the worst-looking streets in America right now), there are better "remedies" for decaying infrastructure than a slick coat of white paint.

LA Mayor's Brilliant Idea: Fight Global Warming by Painting Streets White
  LA Mayor Garcetti has solved the Climate Change Crisis that doesn't exist. Spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to paint already crumbling streets white. Genius!
