Cardboard Kids

Mike Wood of West Salem, Ohio, was tired of people speeding down his street, and figured they'd slow down if they saw children. So, he took digital photos of his sons, printed them, mounted them on lifesize cutouts, and put them in his front yard. Sure enough, drivers have slowed down -- some have even yelled at him for letting his "kids" play so close to the road. He's getting requests from all over the country from people who want to duplicate his idea.
