Unrelated - Speed Bumps of the Future: Creepy Optical Illusion Children

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/discoblog/2010/09/07/speed-bumps-of-the-future-creepy-optical-illusion-children/
just read this.. and let me know what you think.
It made me think about how well these would work, unless you drive past it frequently and ignore it. Then suddenly a real kid appears... then your fucked.


A nifty idea anywho.

  2. All it will do is desensitize people to a real issue. I'd rather deal with normal speed bumps. Also, I can't wait to hear about someone seeing this and then slamming on their brakes only to have the guy behind him rear end him. Safety my ass.

  5. It's an extremely cool idea. It causes the driver to slow down before it can recognize the image, because of the distance required to see the drawing as an accurate representation. As you get closer the image will stretch out and you'll realize it was just an illusion. But you'll have slowed down first. Either way, it's just a PSA and is not gonna replace real speed bumps anytime soon.

  14. Pretty drastic initiative. Wouldn't suprise me if it would actually cause some accidents because of people trying to avoid her.
