This Is Real Street Art

Isafjördur is a small city in the extreme northwest corner of Iceland. It’s a remote place with a population of just 2,600 year-round residents, but like the rest of the country it has been experiencing a tourism boom. And with the visitors, traffic problems arrived. To protect local pedestrians, and rambling tourists too, the city partnered with Vegamálun to create eye-catching crosswalks to slow drivers down a bit. Seems like a good concept that would work everywhere.
