When the Islington city council tried to think of a way to slow down cyclists on their famous canalway, they came up with a creative and (hopefully) effective solution.
The way I see it, this piece of “art” may have several unintended consequences:
- Cyclists see this thing and panic – causing them to swerve and hit the fence, shooting them into the river
- Cyclists see it, know it isn’t real and slow down to stare at it, hitting a pedestrian
- Cyclists know it is fake, so they speed up to show the council what a waste of money this is
