3D Crossings

3D Crossings

3D street crossings are a fantastic alternative to conventional speed bumps. This idea has been around for a long time.  However the crossings in India by Saumya Pandya Thakkar and Shakuntala Panya have inspired many.

Since then several countries have tried out this style of zebra crossing.  South Africa, China, New Zealand, Canada, Nigeria and Iceland have all tested this alternative crossing.

These crossings are a great way to use art to encourage motorists to slow down.  Hence 3D street crossings could save lives.  Additionally these crossings help to reduce air pollution by encouraging motorist to maintain a lower speed and avoid excessive acceleration and deceleration.  

The creative and fun example below from Dunedin, New Zealand is by  Jenny McCracken.
