Sometimes you need to _force_ an issue. He's done everything exactly right.

I like this earlier version better. Even if it did confuse you from a
distance surely you wouldn't like to admit that to anyone having got a
little closer to it.

Only a speed merchant could be anything like ****ed off by it enough
to complain of its existence.

In many stores esp. in U. S. airports they have life size card board cut outs of guys that look like federal agents. Everyone knows it's a cardboard cutout but just reminding people that someone could be watching reduces theft.

The bird box is at least as transparent and honest in that it's only deceptive to those who are driving too fast. If you are a good alert driver going the speed limit then you can read the sign.

I would not mount a big crusade to keep anyone, even the state, from doing this.

It isn't just speed merchants. It is about all the not particularly
alert drivers going "just over" the limit that has caused all the hoo
haa about the "unfairness" of cameras.

Since the typical tolerance is 10% + 2mph and that speedometers over
read it means that when going "just over" a 30mph limit their needle
will be pointing to 40mph or more. That is an example of the level of
alertness required of drivers.
