Ducks controls the speeding motorists

A new method to stop the speeding motorists! Postmistress Ann Martin, 63, from Portesham, Dorset, has recruited a squad of ducks, after she noticed motorists driving more carefully when the birds were around.

She trained the ducks to appear at the side of the road during the morning and afternoon rush hours. As soon as motorists see the birds, they hit the brakes to avoid running them over.

The flock, which includes 20 ducks and four geese, even braves crossing the road to get to the post office to be fed. Mrs Martin said: 'Drivers use the village as a rat-run – it's like the M1 here at rush hour. The sight of ducks seems to be the only thing that gets them to slow down.' Link
