They created tiny safety road signs for the city's adorable residents
We all try to be the safest drivers on the road and ensure that no one ever gets hurt.
Sadly, accidents do happen, and humans aren't the only victims. Many animals suffer from vehicle accidents through no fault of their own.
That is why, Clinic 212, a marketing and communications firm based in Lithuania, started a project to help protect these animals. Their latest installation, #TinyRoadSign, aims to enable driver awareness around areas that are wooded, or that are populated by animals.
It's a small reminder that humans are not the only ones crossing the road.
These signs aim to protect the many animal species from road accidents.
The creative team wanted to build tiny animal road signs that would "show that we are not the only ones living in the city." They were also installed to remind walkers, drivers, and cyclists that both humans and animals inhabit the city.
"I saw a hedgehog passing through the street and it was so dark that the taxi driver barely saw hedgie," project manager Martynas Karpovicius told The Huffington Post. Thus, he set out to make a road sign in Vingis Park, a popular park in the city.
The team put up the tiny road signs in four different locations. There are now two signs in Vingis Park — one for birds and another for hedgehogs.
Two others stand nearby: one for other birds (specifically, ducks), and the other for homeless cats.
The street signs are extremely well-made. They come complete with colored edging and the animals' silhouettes. In addition, the designers have drawn tiny crosswalks to go with the signs.
While the tiny road signs can be viewed as works of art, they remind us that as humans who coexist with other species, we have a civic duty to be mindful and respectful of them.
