  4. trucks and other large vehicles, from driving on the road. And anti affordances,

  9. to signify that an automobile can't pass over
  10. them. In this case, they're fake. They're false
  11. anti-affordances. They signify non passage. But in fact,

  13. a car passes over them. Or as shown in the photo, if someone steps on them.
