This has been done already in may systems - painting in a way that creates an optical illusion.

Stage:

No 'Actions' added yet - be the first to add one!

I like the idea of this however, I would be slightly concerned regarding rubbernecking to see the images instead of drivers focusing on the road ahead. I think a basic 3D design could be a positive addition as many drivers may simply not see the old painted cross walk.

This seems like an easy project to try out locally. I'd suggest setting up a system to observe behavior both before and after putting this into place - potentially with two different design varieties to see which is most effective. A few different things could be measured too - like traffic calming, but also the moods of pedestrians...

What other optical illusions could be tried?
