Village Fake Police Officer Stops Speeders

THIS bizarre method of slowing down speeding motorists could be a stroke of genius.


Dummy stops speeding motorists in Poland


This dummy has been stopping speeding motorists.

Fed up townsfolk made a fake traffic cop and armed it with a hairdryer to cut out speeding in Moscice, Poland.

Residents dressed the papier-mache model it in a high-vis jacket, a police-style cap and aviator glasses to deter motorists from going too fast.

It’s not known who made the model – but the local police took offence and seized the makeshift traffic calmer claiming it could “distract” motorists.
