Hide-and-wait / Zebra Crosssing


Pedestrians’ jaywalking is still common today, even if there is an increasing number of traffic accidents related to it. Hide-and-wait zebra crossing reminds people to walk and stop in nearly an interaction way of gamification. When the crosswalk signal lamps turn green, the zebra crossing emerges from both sides to the middle of the road; and it will fade away gradually before the lamps turn red.
Hide-and-wait zebra crossing emphasizes the safety and social order. The psychological suggestions it applies make it more efficient, receptive and agreeable.
