UKs First 3D Zebra Crossing Floats in London

The UK's first '3D' zebra crossing has been introduced in north-west London in an attempt to slow down cars.

The design of the crossing uses a 3D effect to make it appear as though the crossing is floating above the road. It is hoped that the 3D effect will help drivers pay more attention to the road, subsequently slowing drivers down.

The crossing has been introduced as part of a year-long trial basis by Westminster City Council. The Zebra trialled 3D Zebra crossing can be found around the corner from the UK's most famous Zebra crossing on Abbey Road.

The AA said it was "worth a try" but warned the safety of both drivers and pedestrians needed to be monitored. The walkway on St John's Wood High Street is very close to what is probably London's most famous crossing - the one immortalised by The Beatles for Abbey Road.

The AA told the BBC that is was "worth a try" but has warned that the safety of both motorists and pedestrians needs to be monitored.

The move follows the creation of similar schemes in other countries.

The trial was prompted by a number of concerns raised to the council about the safety of children who attend a nearby school.
