Innovative 3D Crosswalks Adorn the Streets of an Icelandic City


       

A small fishing village in Iceland is making big strides in traffic safety. They have 3D pedestrian crossings cleverly painted to give an optical illusion that the zebra stripes are “lifted”. This is a fun way of giving the pedestrians a feeling that they’re walking on air. On the other hand, the drivers are more careful and slow down when they see the “floating” stripes.

Such 3D crossing was spotted in New Delhi, India by the Icelandic environmental commissioner – Ralf Trylla. Once back in his territory, he commissioned the same thing to a street painting company – Vegmalun GIH.
