These cute Japanese construction barriers are a great way to bring some smiles to an otherwise dangerous field. Instead of the stark concrete barriers that are traditionally used, these new signs will definitely be the most adorable construction connection possible.

Aside from being hilariously endearing, these cute Japanese signs serve a far greater purpose -- they’re incredibly noticeable. Part of the underlying danger involved in construction work on roadways is that it’s entirely possible for drivers to completely miss the signs. No one is going to fail to notice a pink bunny or a blue dolphin blocking off an area. The question is whether or not these characters will distract motorists enough to create an entirely different danger.
