A Vancouver Parking Garage has installed speed bumps on their floors with drawings of children playing. Here’s what it looks like:

I’ve been asked what I think and frankly, I don’t like it. First of all, some nuts will see it as a target. Second, I can see brakes slamming on, and tail enders happening. Third, once people get used to it, it will provide a “boy who cried wolf” effect and they will ignore it. Then…when they see a real kid, who knows. It looks pretty realistic.

I have seen these types of drawings in real life. Mostly advertising and they certainly get your attention. But is this the kind of attention you want from a driver? I don’t think so
