The tiny road signs of Lithuania have stolen our hearts
Whether you’re in a car or on foot, when you’re cruising down the street it’s hard to keep track of every little thing. But there’s a lot going on that we all need to keep an eye out for, like the wildlife that could call the places around the road home. In Lithuania, marketing and communications company Clinic 212 has created a petite project to remind the residents of Vilnius that they’re sharing the road with more than just cars.
“Tiny Road Sign” is exactly what it sounds like. Clinic 212 has put miniature street signs, complete with colored edging and silhouette shapes, to show where hedgehogs cross and cats hang out. Ducks and pigeons also get signs, to alert local drivers and pedestrians to be on the lookout.
And, naturally, the signs are totally adorable. What could be cuter than a hedgehog crossing the street? A hedgehog crossing the street while following proper traffic safety etiquette by using his own mini-crosswalk.
The project is designed to “show that we are not the only ones living in the city,” Clinic 212 writes at Boredpanda. While it’s easy to forget that critters of all sizes make their home in our urban jungles, these clever little signs are just the trick to help you keep that in mind.
We’d love to see other cities adopt these super tiny, very adorable, really helpful signs.
