[citation][nom]hispeed120[/nom]So does the projection ever disappear, or does the drive just have to face the fact that he/she is running over a fake kid?[/citation]
I can just imagine it now... some poor bloke is just going to stay there until the kid moves, despite the fact that she can't.
I'm glad to see everyone is reading the article before posting their comments. (sarcasm)
It's elongated on the pavement, and only looks proportional from 100 feet away. As you get closer (at 18 mph as per the speed limit) it clearly is just a painting on the road. FFS, people.
But yea, Canada is a screwed up country.
[citation][nom]MiamiU[/nom]I don't see what's the problem with these "speed bumps"... they are putting them in residential zones not major roads. Aren't most residential zones like 25 MPH speed limits?[/citation]
I agree. and don't forget, too, that it isn't a projection. It's not a hologram. It really is painted on the road. (google sidewalk art and you'll see how the illusion works) It only looks real at a distance as stingstang stated (wow say THAT 3 times fast lol). Once you are up close, even 20, 30 ft away, it just looks like a distorted image painted on the road. The only thing I would have to agree on for the other side though is about people becoming desensitized to it jus tlike we do any other sign. I mean, you'd think that a great big flourescent yellow sign saying school zone should be enough. Or that a 25MPH sign should tell you but after all this time, we as drivers simply don't care enough, or we think we are more important than the next guy and don't have to obey. This will work... for a while. But given our history, I would think that before too long, it will be just another road sign that we ignore.
