United Arab Emirates’ Police are either super lazy, have a great sense of humor or both. This cutout of a cop car on the highway, complete with randomly flashing lights, does a perfect job of making drivers hit the brakes and be on their best behavior. At least, the first time. Surely, after a couple days, this cutout began to be a certain way to pick out the tourists and out-of-towners from those who have already come to ignore this clever trick.

The next move is probably parking a real cop behind that cutout to snag all the drivers who have been lulled into a false sense of security by seeing this faux-cop on their commute every morning.
