THE VIRTUAL CRASH BILLBOARD
Starting on March 22nd, a specially designed billboard was placed all over the Paris area to raise awareness about the dangers of being a careless pedestrian. Equipped with a motion detector, speaker, and camera, the smart billboard made the sound of squealing tires whenever a pedestrian attempted to cross the road while the “red man” was on. The frightened faces of the disobedient pedestrians were projected directly onto the billboard and shown alongside the caption: “Don’t risk looking death in the face. Check the lights and cross safely”.

To date, 9 million fewer people have been exposed to hate speech on Twitter.
