Think about it. How long are they? And how long are they in actuality?

Whatever you think, you're probably wrong. Check this out.

HA! I was right! I said 8-10 feet. :D

I was thinking about 2 metres, so not too far off. And maybe the Australian regulations are different.

I don't know how anyone could think 2ft though.

The Husband said 3 feet, and when I told him about the study, he argued that we look at them straight on which shortens them visually. Sure, honey...

That was brought up in the article, actually. He's right. There's a lot more to perception than we think!

He seemed a bit defensive about it, though. ;D

I thought three feet first, then changed my mind to five feet.

I don't think I would have ever guessed ten feet though. Now I want to go our and measure one, just to see. Unfortunately, I don'tthink it's a great idea to go stand in the middle of a highway.

Weird. I'd never thought about it before but I certainly wouldn't have guessed ten feet.
