“We are trying out 3D paintings used as virtual speed breakers to avoid unnecessary requirements of speed breakers.”

Brilio.net - Instead of using thousands of speed-bumps or placing dozens of patrolmen on every intersection, India’s transport minister Nitin Gadkari is using 3D street art to fight against dangerous speedy drivers.

“We are trying out 3D paintings used as virtual speed breakers to avoid unnecessary requirements of speed breakers,” Gadkari said in a tweet recently.

As you can see in the pictures, these optical illusions are surely eye-catching. We will definitely slow down if we’re driving towards what looks like a floating pedestrian crossing, won’t we?

The brilliant idea comes after an earlier decision about removing all speed-bumps from highways across India. But they then realized that they posed too much of a danger to high-speed drivers, so the government began looking for safer alternatives.

They hope the 3D paintings will help to reduce road traffic accidents, and also to reduce road-related deaths in the world. Currenly India has the highest number of road-accident deaths in the world.
