WATCH: Outremont uses street art to slow down drivers

A borough in Montreal had already implemented a similar project earlier this month and the area councillor said the goal is to slow down drivers by giving them the impression they may run into the crosswalk.

Mayor Jim Watson and Alta Vista Coun. Jean Cloutier will be on hand Friday at the crosswalk for an official launch on Othello Drive, between Wingate Drive and Chapman Boulevard.
