Trompe-l'œil Crosswalk

Imagine driving downtime road and seeing a zebra crossing floating in the air. Maybe that would make you pay attention to the road! Or at least, that's the idea. This Trompe-l'œil illusion was painted on a crosswalk in Ísafjörður, Iceland, for the specific purpose of grabbing the attention of distracted drivers. And it's pretty cool looking, too. An illusion painted on the road is not a new idea- it's been done in Vancouver, Canada; Ahmedabad, India; and somewhere in Kyrgyzstan. And yeah, it only works in one direction.
