Sex doll cuts accidents in blackspot

An accident blackspot has had the number of crashes reduced after a blow-up sex doll was tied to a tree in a bid to slow drivers down.
Fed-up pensioner Lin Chen bought the doll and dressed it in sexy red undies so motorists would slow down to take a look.
She hatched the racy plan after becoming frustrated with the amount of speeding drivers outside her home in Ningbo, in Zhejiang province in eastern China.
The 67-year-old purchased the inflatable sex toy and and added a few slinky additions to ensure it caught the attention of drivers.
"There are a set of traffic lights near my house and the cars just shoot through them as fast as they can," explained Chen.
"It's very dangerous.
"The police aren't interested so I bought this doll and tied it to the tree.
"I thought that drivers would slow down if I could give them something worth looking it."
Astonished police admit that accident figures have dropped since Chen started to make a dummy of the speeding drivers.
"It isn't a method we would use, but we can't say it isn't working," said a spokesman.
