Canada's Optical Illusion to Stop Speeding Cars

I personally think this will cause more accidents. If I seen a child all of a sudden in front of my car I would slam on my breaks.

omg that is a TERRIBLE IDEA! I would slam the brakes too. At least they're just speed bumps, hopefully they won't be in heavy traffic!

I just foresee you following someone and they slam on their breaks because of the 'faux' child and then -BAM- they slam into them...

It would work to begin with (though it might cause a few low-speed fender benders and people slam on breaks), but then people would get to ignoring it and suddenly a real kid gets killed!

This definitely wouldn't have been my first vote on how to slow down speeders. It would play a mind trick on me for sure!

Who the heck thought this was a good idea? I can totally see this 1) causing accidents from people slamming on their brakes and 2) causing accidents bc suddenly people are conditioned not to stop for the real thing.

Oh lord. Lol. Its not a Canadafail. Its one town around one school. That's like failing the US for doing that around one school in Amarillo TX. Though I do think its stupid its around a school so people should be driving slow anyway.
