The last ten times I’ve driven into town I’ve been confronted by a duck that stands beside the road. It seems that I and the drivers ahead of or behind me slow down because it looks like this duck is going to make a run for it, though it simply stands within the fog line quacking at passing traffic.
It was then that I realized that I should get a decoy and plant it on the side of my road to slow traffic down. Like a speed bump I will call it a speed duck. Traffic rarely slows down for 1000 lb horses in the road, but ducks seem to command more respect among drivers.
