I don’t know about you, but I certainly remember when I was a kid, cars rarely stopped at pedestrian crosswalks! Every year, it seems like they add something new for our safety, but this is by far the most ingenious idea ever.
This article that one of our readers have sent us, there is a solution to slowing down drivers on busy roads shared amongst bikers and pedestrians.
The Optical Illusion
What you do see here for the crosswalk are actually painted lines with the perspective of objects on the road. The illusion that is created help deter drivers from speeding when they notice “objects” being placed ahead of them.
Do you like this idea? Perhaps your neighbourhood could benefit from optical art such as these.
