Mr. Ian Magee, a 63 year old resident of Williton, Somerset, England, has come up with a simple, yet effective, way to slow down the traffic speeding through his local neighborhood. He took a bird feeder box that was the same size, shape, and color of the traffic cameras in England and placed it on his street. His idea has worked, not only slowing down everyday drivers but ambulances as well.

Apparently, the local bird and bat population is also quite happy with the new bird feeder turned fake traffic camera, but the local authorities are not exactly thrilled. They’re torn on whether or not they should allow him to leave the box up. It’s a brilliant idea, and it’s helping the surrounding community in more than one way. The box should stay. Period. The local government needs to stop being jealous that they’ve been out done by and old man and his bird feeder.
