Thats what I thought too, but imagine what happens if you drive on that road alot. You get used to it over time and start to ignore it. Then one
day theres a real girl, and Instead of the Boy who cryed Wolf, you get the Road that Cryed kid..
It's a wise idea in concept but a poor result in execution. People will get used to it and no longer pay attention to it. Next thing you know,
people will think that real kids playing ball are illusions too. I actually think it's a potentially dangerous deception.
Australia already has its own optical illusions, ADR (Australian Design Rules) used to stipulate the speedo's accuracy must be within +10 to -10 %
From about mid 2008 from memory the ADR was changed stating the car must be travelling slower than the indicated speed up to 14%
So on our highways limited to 100Kph you may be only doing 96kph as I have seen some cars we sell use up to 12% of that tollerance and warranty wont
fix it as its built within the ADR's
Now heres the catch in my eye speedo's used to me a lot more accurate in the 70's and 80's than they are now, with todays computer controlled
instruments I thought they would be a darn sight more accurated than an old analogue cable driven unit. Woohoo way to move forward guys just like the
fuel comsumption figures.
