DRIVING through Kane County, Utah in the US, I was impressed by the visible presence of their sheriffs, whose duties include traffic control. I slowed down as I approached a small town when I noticed the sheriff's vehicle at the side of the road (another one was stationed at the town's exit).
Upon closer inspection, I was surprised to find that these officers were dummies!
Yet I daresay their dummies are more effective than our traffic officers, as they certainly don't accept bribes or go on strike. I thought we could do the same here and save money on salaries, until I realised that after a week the car would have been stripped.
