array and curve, distortion, dupliframes, other idea?

Hi,

I have to design something like stripes on the road.
I would like to multiple object (with array) and place it copies along the curve.
The object should only inherit location and rotation from the curve,
the mesh shouldn’t deform.

When I combine array and curve modifiers I’m getting distortion as marked on the screenshot.


I know, the DupliFrames can do it, but are there other solutions beside DupliFrames? DupliFrames is somehow not my favorite tool.

I’ve tried to link a plane to empty object and empty object to the curve but without success.

Any help appreciated.

I think only DupliFrames will do it. I would like to know another way if there is one, but DupliFrames are kind of cool anyway.
