To combat speeding on his street, an elderly British man decided to mount up high a bird feeder that looks like a speeding camera.
And it worked. Ian Magee, 63, put the bird feeder on a street in Williton, Somerset to get drivers to abide the 30-miles-per-hour speed limit. But weeks later, the West Somerset Council asked for its removal. Excerpts from its released statement, reported by Daily Mail.
We’re not sure which will win out. But the story gets even quirkier. Apparently some birds and even bats have taken fondly to the box — the latter making it tricky to remove the box, as they are a protected species.
