Czech Towns Enlist Cardboard Police in Mini-Skirts to Slow Traffic

Cash-strapped Czech towns have found a solution for dealing with speedy drivers: Female police officers in mini-skirts.

What do you do if you're a cash-strapped town with speedy drivers? How about deploying cardboard, life-sized female police officers in mini-skirts? This is exactly what several Czech towns have have done to slow down their hurried residents—and it's working. Instead of installing new (expensive) lights, the towns, including Mrakotin, have installed the female cut-outs in speed zones. According to the mayor, drivers, including him, automatically slow down when they see the leggy officers. And for the ladies with lead feet? Apparently that's not a concern.
