More alien landings spotted in Taipei

More UFO Parking areas showed up today in Taipei Fu-Xing South road. Wished there were more bike parkings ! A fellow citizens asked me this morning. How do you think about this road. We had a very fun and long discussion and both came to the conclusion that [1] this surface could have been done better [2] No idea of the reason(s) for such rough surface [3] No idea of the purpose of the "art" work. [4] the artwork (?) makes the road more bumpy. It seems I am not the only one with these question. will this be another "FAIL" just because of a good idea but poor execution ? Wondering if the city government ever consulted other countries, universities and 3rd party on suggestions. Will this be another DIY trial and error? Car, Bus an Taxi drivers would LOVE to see this fail.
