"Love needs a zebra crossing" is a very popular saying on the Internet.

To many locals in Chengdu, the "I Love you" zebra crossing perfectly captures the spirit of the saying. This zebra crossing became Chengdu's red carpet.

The red-ground zebra crossing, first such work in China, was painted with words "I Love You" and two linked hearts. The "red carpet" was created to send blessings to local couples, and to remind people of traffic regulations.

"We designed this love zebra crossing not only for newly-married couples. It gives warmth and love to everyone who walks over it," a Chengdu traffic policeman said.

In countries where people use creative crosswalk art, good crosswalk or zebra crossing designs can help to enhance street safety. When drivers see something unique on the road, the design may cause them to slow down to have a closer look. In doing so, they are also more cautious about pedestrians who are in the middle of crossing the street.
