Tired of speeding cars, residents of the village of Crosby-on-Eden in Cumbria, England, decided to take matters into their own hands: by creating a scarecrow policeman, complete with a radar gun made from a water bottle!
David Sowden, another resident, added: "Certainly from a distance it looks like a genuine police officer.
"One visitor said it would be a good idea to keep that up for a week and then replace him with a proper physical police officer with a gun for another week and see what happens.
"It has made them nose dive and they said they couldn't believe the reaction."
