Would you stop in front of you if you saw a pathway that “float”? We certainly. So did the Transport Minister of India Nitin Gadkari, he thought a very original and clever way to prevent accidents and make drivers understand faster and more intensely the crossings on the streets.
So instead of the classic familiar to all of us “bumps”, India suggested to place three-dimensional crosswalks. As you will see for yourselves in the photos they seem more like optical illusions rather than common pathways.

The Transport Minister of India in a recent Tweet,”trying to avoid the bumps that is not at all a good idea, by designing illustrations passes that will be most niticeabled to drivers and will be more careful to reduce accidents on the roads which is a huge problem in India.
This idea came when we took the decision to remove all of the bumps out of the country because it is very dangerous for drivers running quickly. So we thought that the way to reduce accidents in India that their number is huge especially at pedestrian crossings and the dead are thousands every year. “
