Eyes on the road

The city council in Anprior, a small town of about 200 in Scotland, is experimenting with an unusual method of reducing the speed of motorists passing through their village. The road is straight, but they've painted it with a wiggly white centre line to make it look like it is bumpy and curved. The idea is that drivers will take more caution than if they see a straight line stretching out before them. Some local residents say it's "silly" and one said "it just looks like the lines were painted by a drunken road worker".

city council/conseil municipal – speed/vitesse – straight/droit – wiggly/ondulé, en zigzag – bumpy/bosselé – curved/courbe – to take, took, taken caution/faire preuve de prudence – to stretch out/s’étirer – drunken/ivre
