You can’t beat a bit of Indonesian originality and creativity.
This creation by an unknown netizen could potentially be the answer to the danger of railroad crossings. According to the description:
‘Problem: Many accidents happened on train crossing gate in Indonesia. Cars, motorcycles, even people often cross the railways when the alarm is on and the gate is moving down. It is very dangerous!’
‘Idea: Instead of putting unusual notice board poster (that people never notice), they installed a giant cleaver shaped poster on the gate to remind people about the dangers. The copy says, “Don’t be reckless, Stay safe.”’
‘Result: People clearly receive a relevant message in an unexpected way and it grabs many attentions. The giant cleaver made drivers stop when the alarm is on as the gate moving down. It has been a breakthrough that Indonesian Railways ever did (sic).’
