Cardboard Cops for Texas roads

A Texas sheriff is taking on speeders in his county by placing cardboard cutouts of deputies next to roads rife with lead-footed drivers.

Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody tweeted a video showing one of the cutouts, which he said depicts one of the department's real-life deputies, giving the appearance of a police presence next to a road in the Fern Bluff neighborhood of Brushy Creek.

"It's a creative way to solve a problem without really working the problem," Chody told KTCB-TV.

The State Police, Mickleton cops and Elmer cops leave empty cars sitting in hotspots. You should see the people nearly going through their windscreens when they see them. :lol:

Well now the people know there are cardoard cutouts, whats the chances it is going to make no difference?  Mind you, it is not really difficult to see that the "cop" does not move.....at all. 

Maybe sticking a real camera in there might have helped, as long as it does not get stolen or run over.
