The city of Vancouver will release a new brand of speed bump that uses an optical illusion to keep drivers alert. A painting of a child on pavement (photo above) will appear to be three dimensional when cars get within 100 feet of it, giving the drivers enough time to slow to a stop. Once the cars pass the ideal viewing distance, the image returns to its two dimensional form.
Yeah. I know what you mean. Imagine if the driver is tired, or it was raining hard and couldn't see the road very well. The driver, who never seen it before and is driving fast, might think it was real, and he/she might swerve just to avoid the painting and may crash into another car or worse!
Very dangerous and very stupid. It's like crying wolf! Get drivers used to the idea that what appears to be a child really might not be?
How stupid can they get?
