Pavements in some areas of Copenhagen have recently been marked with mysterious cartoon-like labels.

The street artist behind the labels turn out the be the City of Copenhagen, and the aim is to make the streets safer for school kids.

By following the labels, kids are able to find the safest route between destinations in school districts.

The system is personified by a cartoon character named 'Max'. Footprints are used to visualize a route and when there is a crossing or turn to make, Max will show up and point in the direction.
