Indian police deploy mannequins to warn lawbreakers on road

Mannequins dressed up as traffic officers are being placed at major road intersections in India in the hope they will prompt drivers to observe the rules. With eight million cars plying the notoriously busy roads in a tech hub renowned for its traffic snarls, police say they don’t have enough officers to man all the junctions. The idea is to increase compliance, not to scare anyone, according to a city police commissioner.

The mannequins are swapped with actual police, using a hide and seek tactic to keep the drivers aware of the fact that their behaviour is being observed.
