Cari also says that while some illusions can pose a threat, some can actually save lives. In Chicago Lake Shore Drive, illusions have been used to control the speed of the drivers on dangerous curves. Stripes are made and arranged close to one another at the sharpest edge of the curve. This gives the driver an illusion of speeding up and they slow down leading to hopefully fewer accidents.
