Children's Crossing Signs in Slovenia
But — Yes, I know. I will now ruin the happy feeling. — the drawing is far from perfect. Upper and lower leg are out of proportion and it looks like they are glued to the road. They will never reach the beach (Portoroz is a seaside resort).
The next set of pictures illustrates a approach emerging in many countries
(e.g. Denmark, Bulgaria).
The idea probably is that
Children love to play. So let's play with the sign.
And that's what happens.
Watch out, School, Drive carefullybut the message is probably lost because the drawings suggest a much younger audience than normally found behind the wheel and drivers will not recognize them as warnings.
Even who pays attention will have trouble understanding their meaning. Do I need to be prepared for an explosion and a break out? Will children fall from the sky? Is the girl in red telling me that children are not allowed to leave the triangle? Are there cybernetic children on the road — with valves and earphones on their excentric heads?
Is there any research supporting the better performance of this kind of designs?
