A Chinese homeowner who was sick and tired of cops ignoring speeders blowing the stop lights outside her house found an unlikely ally in a real dummy.

Lin Chen, 67, dressed up a sex doll in lingerie and attached it to the tree outside her home in Ningbo, and now drivers are hitting the brakes right on schedule, if for nothing else than to catch a glimpse at the apparently nearly-naked "woman" posing on a front lawn. "I thought that drivers would slow down if I could give them something worth looking it,' she said.

According to the Daily Mirror, a police spokesman says of Chen's idea, "It isn't a method we would use, but we can't say it isn't working."
