A small town in Iceland found an innovative way to reduce the speed of speeding cars
Ísafjörður is a small town situated in the Westjfords region of northwest Iceland. The town is really famous for its beautiful views and picturesque landscapes. The town is also popular for fishing and is breathtakingly beautiful. There has been a new development for road safety; the new safety development is designed to lower the speeds of cars going through the town. The safety development is basically a pedestrian crossing which has been painted in a clever way to be appearing to be 3D by incorporating a cleverly detailed optical illusion.
The innovative and clever design provides the pedestrians the feel of walking on air. In addition to that, it also gets the attention of drivers, who will certainly slow down after seeing the floating zebra stripes in the middle of the road.

Icelandic environmental commissioner Ralf Trylla called for its placement in Ísafjörður after seeing a similar project being carried out in New Delhi, India. With the help of street painting company Vegmálun GÍH, his vision became a reality.
