I heartily approve! Plenty of places will park a police cruiser where they want traffic to slow down. By the time a driver sees there’s no cop inside, he’s already slowed down. This innovation will save local government the price of a police car, which I assume is not small.

Around my neck of the woods they place dressed dummies in the cars. It works well for a portion of the day but then the jig is up once drivers get wise. Then the car is moved to another location.[quote=“TobinL, post:5, topic:97002”]
