Lin Chen Uses Sex Doll to Slow Down Traffic

| by Michael Allen

Lin Chen was tired of speeding drivers near her home in Ningbo, China, so she decided to try a novel trick to slow down traffic.

The 67-year-old Chen put an inflatable sex doll in ingerie and tied it to a tree next to a crosswalk, according to Chinese-language newspaper Tiexue.

Chen told "I thought that drivers would slow down if I could give them something worth looking at."

Amazingly, the stunt worked. Drivers slowed down to rubberneck and gawk at the figure.

A police spokesman said: "It isn't a method we would use, but we can't say it isn't working."
