Optical illusion 3D Zebra crossing aims to slow people down
A 3D-painted zebra crossing that provides an optical illusion of white blocks floating in the road has been trialled in Iceland in a bid to slow drivers down.
The appropriately named '3D Crosswalk' has been painted on a road in Ísafjörður in north-west Iceland.
The firm only came up with the idea earlier this month, taking just a few weeks to get the green light from local authorities.
Vegamálun CEO Gauti Ívar Halldórsson told Icelandic website Visir: "A pedestrian crossing like this makes it look like there's something blocking the road."
If the crossing successfully slows drivers down, more similar crossings may be painted around the town.
