Speed bumps will one day be replaced with illusions of children

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2010

Speed bumps are so last century. That’s why the Canadian city of Vancouver is experimenting with a speed control solution that uses an optical illusion to trick you into thinking there is a child in the road. I’m sure that will slow people down and give some people heart attacks too.

The program is being piloted near École Pauline Johnson Elementary School, where they use a very lifelike painted optical illusion that looks like a little girl chasing a ball into traffic.

Speed Bumps that flatten at low speeds

Speed Bumps that flatten at low speedsHere’s an interesting concept in speed bump design. This speed bump flattens out when you cross over it at low speeds. The idea behind it is that it would reward careful slow drivers who cross over it at speeds below 15mph by giving them smooth ride over the speed bump.

Those who are speed demons will get hit with the bump and really feel it. Drivers traveling at safe speeds can drive right over the speed bump without having to slow down at all. Very clever. That should help keep everyone safe. The downside is that it forces everyone to slow down. People are speeding because they hate slow. Slow is slow.
