The last word today has to go to Patti Forest Baumgartner in Polson, Montana, USA.
Fed up with people driving ridiculously fast down her road, a traffic blackspot, and putting her grandchildren, playing nearby, at risk, she decided to take matters into her own hands… with some creativity.
She set up camp with a comfy chair, a cuppa and a hair dryer, which she pointed at cars in the hope that speeding motorists would assume it was a radar gun.
Whatever any passing drivers may have thought, Patti’s now famous.
Her son tagged a local policeman in the photos he shared of her doing her civic duty and she’s now been made an honorary Montana trooper, complete with cap and badge.
Here she is in all her glory.
Patti, we think you’re great! #FinleyPoint #SlowDown #KidsCrossing
Stateside or UK-side, road safety is a serious issue. So hairdryers out, y’all!
