Iceland-Photos, Video: 3D crosswalk in Ísafjörður helps slow down speeding motorists

The small fishing town of Ísafjörður in the Westfjords unveiled the first ever “3D crosswalk” in Iceland.

The crosswalk, which is painted to look like it is hovering over the street, is intended to slow down traffic and reduce driving speeds in the narrow residential streets of the old town of Ísafjörður.

The environmental commissioner of Ísafjörður, Ralf Trylla, had come across the idea while researching for novel ways to slow down traffic speed.

It only took a couple of weeks from Ralf getting the idea to all necessary permits from the Police and the Transport Authority being in place. In the meantime Gautur Ívar and Ralf practiced 3D painting.
