Although we have to beg our local officials to install proper Zebra crosswalks in Miami Dade County, it doesn’t hurt to dream a bit. Check out this idea from Korean designer Jae Min Lim.

He has the clever idea to turn crosswalks into J’s. By curving the typical Zebra crossing to take up a wider swath of road, you carve out a nice, safe path for pedestrians — one that reflects how they actually walk.”

One Response to Dreaming about Clever Crosswalks

    It’s a nice path, but I’m not sure it’s any safer. First, they’re still just pavement markings. They don’t provide any kind of protective shield.

    Second, it could put pedestrians farther from the direct line of sight of drivers, which would actually make them less safe.
