3D Speed Breakers
We will soon be witnessing 3D speed breakers on roads in India. Union Transport Minister Nithin Gadkari tweeted about his vision of implementing the idea. “We are trying out 3D paintings used as virtual speed breakers to avoid unnecessary requirements of speed breakers,” wrote Gadkari. The usage of 3D breakers is seen in various places outside India. While some Twitter users are appreciating the idea, some others feel it is not practically great idea. Gadkari ’s tweet raised several doubts on social media. The questions are: What if the driver is passing the painting for the second time and he knew that it isn’t real? ; What if someone had to apply brakes suddently at the sight of 3D painting? ; What about the wear and tear of the paint marks?
