    Default Interesting idea...

    Say you live on a main/busy road and have a problem with speeding motorists/chavs outside your house (I don't - I live in a cul-de-sac and it's physically impossible to hit 15mph before the end of the road!)

    Now, your front garden is your property, and you are free to put whatever garden ornaments you like in it, yes? Let's also assume that your front garden is quite a long one and ends a few feet from the road with a relatively short footpath in between.

    Say you either bought a dead GATSO from eBay or whatever (probably not even possible, but stay with me...) or constructed a life-size model GATSO yourself, couldn't you legally put it at the very end of your garden in order to scare the living sh*t out of the chavs?

    Theres been a few cases in the news were people at local scarecrow festivals have made policemen with speed guns at the end of the garden. They were told to take them down because of risks to road safety!

    It's been done. Some village somewhere made their own dummy Gatso and stuck it up - can't recall exactly where they situated it and what subsequently happened.

    There is a website that shows loads of pics of burnt out Speed cameras etc. It also shows 'home made' speed cameras that people have made to try and slow down motorists.

    I'm actually tempted to stick one in my 15mph-max cul-de-sac for April Fools Day next year now - stick it up in the middle of the night and confuse the hell out of the neighbours - lucky I'm on good terms with them

    Borrow / steal / fashion a stinger. That'll slow them down!
