Robert: Farmer sets up fake cop on road to deter speeders
A farmer in England has had enough with motorists speeding down a road in her town, so she decided to do something about it.
Edie Pope, 71, set up what she calls a “scare-cop” on the side of her road in hopes that speeding drivers will slow down. The mannequin is dressed head to toe with a police officer’s uniform, holding an object that’s suppose to resemble a radar gun.
Pope says she got the idea for the scare-cop after a recent change to the speed limit on the road led to multiple motor vehicle accidents in a short period of time.
Maybe someone should set up a few of these along the Outer Ring Road.
