Taiwan's traffic lights have been given a romantic redesign
Share This Article:
The design has been implemented in over 40 intersections across the county and was trialed last December ready for the romantic occasion. As well as adding a bit of romance, there is a purpose behind the loved-up crossing couples. The designer Cheng Da-wei says he wanted to draw attention to the traffic lights in order to engage with young people and help to remind them of the importance of crossing the road safely.

In a similar fashion, last year ten traffic lights in Melbourne swapped their male crossing symbol for a distinctly female one in order to raise awareness for gender inequality.
