Town Paints Mind-Bending Optical Illusion In Road To Stop Speeding Cars

A town in Iceland went the optical illusion route to stop cars from speeding down a business city street. The result will make any car slow to a crawl and cause any pedestrian to cross with caution. The town of Ísafjörður painted the crosswalk with bright white lines that appear to jump right off the ground thanks to a 3D illusion.

The town isn’t the first to go the 3D route to keep speeding cars from mowing people down. Last year, artist Shivrama Krishna created a similar 3D illusion on different roads and rooftops. Krishna uses a range of paint brushes and stainers to craft his optical illusions.

Here’s a video of the artist installing an optical illusion speedbump of his own in Southern India.
