Speeding on the road and pedestrian safety is a huge problem in Ukraine. They have the highest percent of pedestrian collisions in Eastern Europe with a whopping at 56%. The solution? The Pedestrian Ghost.
The Pedestrian Ghost campaign was done by JWT Ukraine as an ambient advertising example to help inform motorists of the potential consequences of speeding. The customized manhole would detect cars speeding on a certain street and release a human shaped balloon only minutes before a car passed by. This installation forced cars to slow down in fear of hitting an unknown object. Watch the video and let us know what you think! Is this genius or perhaps even more dangerous?
