Cars have been ignoring the more traditional markings on roads so how about trying something that looks like it’s about to fly through the windscreen?

Looks good in a photo, but would it really work?

The first possible issue is that they wont look good when heading in the opposite direction. Secondly, regular drivers, once over the initial shock, will just ignore it and speed through as before.

Good for your favourite social media, but for anything else remains to be seen.
