Police unveil cardboard cops

Vancouver Sun: Police unveil cardboard cops.

The idea is to put life-size cardboard cutouts of police officers holding radar guns on the side of the street. People think they are real cops and so they slow down.

The fake officers were relatively inexpensive to make, Pauw said.


The cut-outs were tested on [Knight] street for a few hours earlier this week and "a tow-truck driver pulled up and started talking to it," Pauw said.

It reminds me of my old idea of walking around with a fully clothed manequin that I could chuck out into the street in front of egrigiously speeding cars.
