Dealing With Speeders In India

India Turns To 3D Paintings As A Speed Breaker Alternative

Tyler Lee | April 27, 2016

If you drive, then you know that speed bumps and speed breakers can a painful experience as not only does it mess with your tyre pressure, but it can affect your car’s suspension, and in some cases with poorly built speed bumps, could end up damaging your undercarriage. However such implementations are necessary due to safety reasons, like to prevent drivers from speeding.
However over in India, it seems that the country has come up with a rather novel way of dealing with speedsters. Instead of turning to regular speed breakers, they have instead chosen to deploy 3D paintings which are designed to look like physical objects from afar, thus forcing the driver to slow down even though in reality, it is a flat surface.
