Canadian Drivers Encouraged To Kill Schoolgirl In Sick Video Game

by | 8th, September 2010

A 3D optical illusion of a girl chasing ball across a road is to feature in the street outside the École Pauline Johnson Elementary School in West Vancouver, Canada.

By the illusion is a sign declaring:

“You’re probably not expecting kids to run into the road.”

The aim is to make drivers drop their speed. The image appears when the approaching vehicle is 30 metres away. If travelling at 30km/h, the driver has plenty of time to stop. When within 30 meters of the image, the girl disappears.

Indeed, he might stop so fast that the car behind goes hurtling into the back of him, perhaps squashing a cyclist between the two vehicles

If the driver is going faster he may either:

a) Plough into the girl and drive off at speed before living a stressed-out life and finally killing himself
b) Swerve to avoid the girl and plough into other children made of blood and bone leaving the school
c) Drive into the kerb, flips his car and die
d) Learn an important lesson and drive more carefully in future
e) See the thing as a video game challenge and keep going until he actually hits the image

It is a brilliant plan that cannot possibly fail…
