#15 I brake for dummies

While driving home from the coffee shop this morning at 7:30, I saw a man (?) on the corner by the pedestrian walk waving at the passing cars.

“What is he doing?” I wondered.
“Is it one of the downtown homeless people who got on the wrong bus?”
“Does he need help?”
“Is he a hitch hiker?”
“I’d better slow down and gawk.”

Although in the far lane where five roads and all sorts of turn lanes come together, I slowed down through the green light to look. I figure I backed up traffic all the way down to Lane Avenue (about 1.5 miles). But then, I had a lot of help.

It was the “crash dummy” pretending to be a human.
