India Tricks Motorists by Using 3D Road Markings to Slow Traffic


Governments around the world spend millions upon millions of dollars trying to come up with the latest technology to help save lives on our roads.

India, however, are proposing a far cheaper, ingenious method by using 3D paintings on their roads to give the optical illusion that there are speed humps or breakers up ahead to slow the traffic down.

According to India’s Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari:

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

Do you think it will work?
