3D Paintings as Virtual Speed- Breakers Likely in India

To check rash driving, the government is considering putting up 3D paintings on major highways and busy roads to create virtual speed breakers.

"We are trying out 3D paintings used as virtual speed breakers to avoid unnecessary requirements of speed breakers,"Mr. Gadkari said in a tweet.

The optional illusions are supposed to encourage drivers to slow down automatically. The government ordered removal of all speed breakers from highways, which are considered to be safety hazard for high- speed vehicles.

According to WHO, over 1.5 lakh people are killed by road accidents due to poor implementation of road safety laws.

Ahmedabad and Chennai have already experiment with 3 D zebra crossings in lastone year.
