A group of Somerton, Oxon locals are attempting to slow down drivers who speed through their village.

They are using over 20 "scarecrows" dressed as a policeman, Donald Trump, Roald Dahlís famous character the BFG and babies on horseback.

According to the Chairman of Somerton Parish Council, it was a speed awareness competition that sparked the creative skill of the local villagers.

She said: "We are looking at alternative ways to increase awareness to drivers passing through our village and surrounding roads and at the same time have a little fun. It's hoped that the scarecrows will cause a little 'edge friction' and encourage a slower speed through the village."

Are such initiatives a valid replacement for speed cameras or do they just distract drivers?

I doubt that making a scarecrow look like Donald Trump took a great deal of imagination Laughing
