    Свежий взгляд на борьбу за безопасность дорожного движения: изобретатель Янник Рид соорудил переносной пешеходный переход. Идея пришла ему в голову, когда он обеспокоился тем, как его сын будет добираться до школы.

    Родители учеников школы попросили городские власти устроить безопасный пешеходный переход, но им было отказано по причине затратности. Тогда Янник изобрел зебру стоимостью менее 50 фунтов. Переход был сделан из переработанного линолеума, дренажных труб и двух желтых шаров и вышел крайне реалистичным.

    Выдумкой Янника заинтересовались местные СМИ, и власти в итоге сделали на необходимом месте настоящий пешеходный переход.

    С тех пор Янник улучшил свои разработки — посмотрите фотографии! Надувное изобретение умещается в сумку.

    A quirky inventor on a crusade to improve road safety has created the world's first inflatable zebra crossing. Back in 2012 Yannick Read created the world's first pop-up zebra crossing after he became concerned about his son's journey to school. Parents at his son's school had asked the local council in Kingston-upon-Thames to install a safe crossing but had been turned down on the basis of cost. According to the Highways Agency, a basic zebra crossing costs an eye-watering £114,000. But Yannick was able to come up with a solution that cost less than £50 - using recycled linoleum, drain pipes and two orange balloons to create an extremely realistic crossing. And thanks to the media coverage his quirky crossing inspired the council agreed to install the real thing.
