Realistic, life-size cardboard cut-outs of children are being used in a Northeastern Ohio neighborhood to slow down speeding cars.
Mike Wood of West Salem, Ohio says he originally started printing life-size posters of grandchildren for their grandparents (odd…but I see the sentimental value).
The darn things look so real, he found they also effectively slow traffic to a safe speed. Mr. Wood is now selling the fake children props for $60 a piece.
People are stopping to buying these cardboard cut-outs of children and he is even getting calls from police stations and neighborhood associations.
