Cardboard kids

More intrigue and uncertainty.

A West Salem, Ohio, man is using life-size cardboard cutouts of kids to slow traffic in his neighborhood. Even sold one to someone driving by.

Cardboard kid advantages:

  • Slows traffic

  • Won't actually run into the street

  • Easier to get to bed, one assumes


  • Not so good in the bath

Perhaps we can put some mechanism behind the cardboard to make them fold back / jump upwards, sort of like a carnival whack-a-mole? To many motorists, driving is some sort of arcade game anyhow.
