Cardboard police car gets results

Just like on the highways of Malaysia, there are cupboards of drawn policeman. However, those cupboard are not effective as compared to these real-like cupboard police car used by New Zealand police.

A cardboard cutout police car is slowing traffic at roadworks sites.

At a Hira roadworks site on Tuesday, the cardboard cutout reduced the number of cars travelling at over 60kmh from 21 out of 50 to five out of 50 and the average speed dropped 15kmh.

One motorist came down from a speed of 73kmh to 38kmh when they saw the cutout, and many others hurriedly put their seatbelts on.
