There has always been an ongoing battle between police and speeding drivers. Now in China, police have come up with a way to deter speeding.

Police in Changsha decided to play dress-up with statues of monkeys. They have dressed these stone monkey statues in fluorescent jackets.

One installation shows a collection of stone primates huddled around a tree, glaring out at the oncoming traffic, one is carved swinging from a branch as another sits mesmerised by his feet.

The law enforcers in the capital city of southern China’s Hunan Province hope that the strange statues will remind drivers to not break the law.

Quite how well the monkeys will reduce traffic offences remains to be seen.

And there’s also the chance the eye-catching figures may actually cause accidents by distracting drivers due to their bizarre appearance.
