If you saw this visual as you approach it in your car, would you reduce speed or slow down?
Some members of the foreign media have recently written articles about some imaginative painting techniques on the roads and streets of India to encourage drivers to reduce speed and consider the safety of pedestrians! This topic has quickly become very popular with online viewers everywhere!
These road markings induce a three dimensional (3D) appearance to an oncoming car or truck and a driver would be inclined to slow down and reduce speed without hesitation.
This imaginative 3D road marking techniques was devised the Indian government. Staff members of the Ministry of Transport introduced the 3D marking system for a trial period before deciding to expand the project to more locations across the nation.
