What are the best examples of a really good design?
What are the best examples of a really good design?. Do You Mrs or Mr has that kind of question?, If do then please found the best answer right after this line:
These have been there for so long but I didn’t realize that they are literally lifesavers until recently. I actually never knew what they were there for.
So I was driving down from New York,NY to Raleigh,NC recently and I was driving solo. As I was coming here for the first time I had to get a lot of addresses, directions from Google. I was alone so I decided I’ll type one character and then look back on road again for safety. Well it didn’t work out and an auto correction took too much of my attention and suddenly I heard an alarming sound and my car started to vibrate. Not too much but like how it would if my car would be a cellphone. So yeah I was about to go into a ditch if these strips wouldn’t have shook me and said ‘Bzzzzz Eyes on the road buddy!!’. There can be various reasons to steer off the road people may get tired and doze off etc.
So yes in my opinion its very ordinary thing in first impression but very well thought off and I’ll consider it as a really good design to save lives.
Edit: Proceed and read for some elucidation, if required.
I appreciate all for the great reception. However, based on some of the comments, I would like to clarify a few things. This by ‘no means’, is and ever would be an inherent suggestion to take this for granted. My answer is specifically talking about how well thought and simple the design is which I’m sure, and you’d all agree, saves a lot of lives.
As far as my own personal interaction with this specific incidence is concerned, other than the mentioned ‘light bulb’ moment I also got back to my senses to not use my phone anymore while driving. I’m typically a good and responsible driver as its implicit by how keen and vigilant I am on the roadways to observe all the gory details. So yes I indeed stopped after that every now and then if I had to use my phone and I was stopping anyway to take breaks because it was nearly a 12–13 hours drive for me (including stoppages).
Which brings me to my next response on some comments where it’s mentioned that its very bad for cyclists. In my opinion its not rather it’s relative. First of all I was driving on Interstate Highways where typical speed of a vehicle was 75 mph. At this speed I don’t think its safe for any cyclist to be on the shoulder as they’ll really get sucked into the traffic with the low pressure created. Believe me its really really strong. Remember tractor trailer usually drive on the right most lane, go figure :). Irrespective of that right shoulders are not supposed to be that small (the pic is nothing but first image I found on google). According tothey are supposed to be at least 3.0 m / 10 Feet. If it’s not then that is one odd highway with a lot of space crunch or if its a road in a city then nowadays they mostly have dedicated bike routes along the way and they possess the right of way.
We at this situspanda dotcom hope if those answers listed above could solve your question. Thank You So Much
