Baltimore Rolls Out New Artist-Designed Crosswalks

Downtown Baltimore is getting cerrraaazzzyyy with it's crosswalks. The city is replacing it's traditional white lines with clever graphics created by area artists in order to improve the pedestrian experience.

One is even a hopscotch board that takes you across the street! Hopefully not to be confused with the game Frogger that many people play trying to run across the street and dodge cars.

FastCompany has a look at some of the cool designs.
