A 3-D crosswalk is being tested in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (KTRK) -- City officials in Kansas City are testing a 3D crosswalk that some are calling a real game changer for pedestrian safety.

This innovation gives drivers an optical illusion that little pedestals are popping out of the ground.

The crosswalks are designed to keep drivers more aware and let them know there's a crosswalk ahead.

According to city officials, they will collect feedback over the next few months to find out its effectiveness.
