Silly Saturday – Sneaky Canadians

How’s this for speed control?
I don’t know about you, but this would slow me down!
People slow down and try to “straddle” the hole, then breathe a sigh of relief that they completely cleared it!
This is actually a speed control device that is in use in Canada.

Much cheaper than speed cameras.

Pretty clever, huh?  Especially if moved around each day.

Isn’t art wonderful?

I wonder if it contributes to any accidents… I think it might around here!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. LOL! That would certainly work on me! Smart! I bet that cost the city budget peanuts compared to pouring asphalt speed bumps! 😉

  2. I just popped over from Meggie's Musings. Your blog is such fun. The idea of these fake pot holes is hilarious.

  3. That's awesome! Although I can definitely see some crazy drivers wrecking because of them.

  4. Ha! being a crazy Canadian myself, I'd love to know what city thought that one up 🙂

    I still like the idea of sitting in my car with a blow dryer pointed toward the traffic to see how many cars slow down 🙂

  5. The definitely look like potholes. Not sure it would slow me down since it would be too late by the time I was able to see it.

  6. Good Morning! Hmmm, how crazy is that. I too think that it might cause accidents in these parts!

    Have a great weekend. Rain.

  7. Michigan is the opposite! One street in my town has two speed bumps in one block- with the sign warning you placed past the bump! You hit them while reading the sign..

  8. Not sure if I like this one. I think it would cause more problems. It is a great idea but I am just not sure.

  9. We could use those in our parking lot at the restaurant! People cut through going too fast and I almost had a dishwasher hit the other day!

  10. i saw these earlier this week. crazy stuff. i would think they may cause a wreck or two swerving to avoid. happy saturday!

  11. Very creative! We could use some of those in our neighborhood!

    Just taking a break from party set-up here…It's only noon, and I'm already exhausted! Wish you could be here…

  12. That is really funny! I thought that it was serious at first. I guess I did not get the twist! LOL!

  13. That's hilarious, but that's what the highways usually look like after a few months of winter.

  14. I thought Big Foot had crashed in from the moon!

    People really are so clever sometimes.

    I'm so honored that you visited my blog. I've seen you around and heard you mentioned on other blogs and so it feels like I've just had contact with a blogging celebrity. So cool!

  15. That was totally hysterical, especially because I thought they were real potholes!

    Justine 😮 )

  16. Very ingenious indeed. But that would definitely put some speeding cars in trouble. LOL @ Canadian street smarts! 😀
