An Elusive Speed Bump (2 pics + 1 video)

Posted in PICTURES       9 Sep 2010       33584       18

In Canada they have come up with a crafty new way to cause people to slow down. It is a speed bump that is an illusion. The goals are to prevent injuries and promote safety on the road. Still, it’s a pretty sneaky way to get people to slow down.
Don't forget to watch the video to see how it works.

It will need somebody to swerve away from the "little girl", wrap his car around a post of some kind and die for them to find out how ridiculous this is...

So Canadian's will be used to seeing drawings of children in the middle of the road and stop slowing down for them? Just wait till someone hits a child and say they thought it was a speed bump.

Not to mention the "Banner Ad" factor. After being subjected to so many "Banner Ad's" most people don't even notice them any more, if people get accustomed to seeing fake kids on the road they could become slow to register when they see a real child.

An excellent example of crying wolf. We all know how that turned out.

It's the most lame-brained, ill-thought, and dangerous, idea I've ever seen!!!
Once drivers get used too seeing these, they will develop a "blind-spot" for them, and the incidence of kids getting hit will see a sharp increase

Umm... You guys, you do know that there is only ONE style of the 'canadian speed bumps', so if there was a kid in the road, people would know because they would have different clothes on and hair.

For a fake speed bump, all it takes is a 10"-wide yellow stripe across the lane. I've seen those in front of a plaza by 72 St. and I-5 in Tacoma, Wa. Pictures of kids are an accident waiting to happen, like others said.
