    It seems weird that you have to hualing ass to see it clearly. What if there's a road jam and people are moving slowly? Do those signs only apply to 100kmh drivers only. I don;t think this is going to go much further..:eek:

    that's really interesting. I'd like to see pics of the signs when and if they go up. Video at speed and another going slow as well.

    Part of me just wonders if its getting higher scores just because its different.

    but
    they should make road signs where you have to blur your vision and refocus to get the 'hidden' image..

    :lol:
