Massive Chicken Terrorises Drivers In California
IF you saw a giant chicken crossing the road, would you pull over to let it cross safely? What about if the huge chicken was clearly not a chicken but a man dressed as one? Police in Lake Elsinore, California, dressed as a huge pecking bird to see if drivers yielded for pedestrians.
And – get this – drivers didn’t stop. Some sped up.
Police cited 31 drivers were cited for failing to give way to a pedestrian – one for speeding.
Sgt. Peter Giannakakos says:
“Even though the decoy was wearing a bright yellow costume, most drivers stated they did not see him crossing the road.”
Even though..? Not stopping for a massive creature in your path is not a sign of recklessness. It’s sanity.
The only sensible thing is for all US police to change their uniforms to chickens or gingerbread men. Perhaps police could recognise official State animals: moose in Alaska, Humback whales in Hawaii or the Massachusetts Garter snake?
