Donald Duck Pedestrian Decoy Scares Drivers Into A Police Fine
WHEN confronted with a 7ft-tall duck in the road do you:
a) slow down
b) speed up
That questions passed through the minds of drivers in Fort Lee, New Jersey, who were presented mid-road with a police officer dressed as Donald Duck. The aim was to catch drivers who don’t yield to pedestrians.
River Edge resident Karen Haigh is one of those drivers, and she plans to fight the $230 ticket she got on Halloween day. “This duck kept going to the kerb, off the kerb,” she said. “I thought it was a crazy guy on Halloween. They told me that I was getting a ticket for not stopping for a duck,” she said. “But it scared me. I’m a woman. It scared me. It was a huge duck. If it was a person dressed normally, I think all those people would have stopped.”
And next time police play dress-ups, it might be idea to avoid the speeding Donald Duck:
File under: road kill.
