Fake Police Cruiser in Nearby Town Tricks Drivers Into Slowing Down [VIDEO]
LAKEVILLE, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has gotten drivers to slow down for years with the help of a sign shaped like a police cruiser posted in his driveway.
Kelly Tufts tells WFXT-TV he got the life-sized Crown Victoria sign from a friend who owned a salvage yard. The sign is made of plywood and aluminum siding.
He puts the sign out on weekends and during the holidays outside his home in Lakeville to slow down drivers in the area. The sign is also reflective at night.
Tufts says the town police are OK with the sign, but some passing drivers have given offensive hand gestures.
"If it was their neighborhood, they'd enjoy it," he says.
