VILLAGERS sick of fast drivers have put up a fake knitted speed camera.

There is even a “30” sign woven in to remind people of the speed limit in the hamlet of Trewoon on the edge of St Austell, Cornualha.
Community care worker Amber-rose Moone, 33, spotted the fake on the A3058, used by many drivers as a short cut.
Ela disse: “It really put a smile on my face.”
Hundreds of locals have signed a petition calling for speed cameras, highlighting an “increasing number of incidents resulting from dangerous driving”.

“Average speed cameras are an efficient and cost-effective way of catching speeding drivers.”
Mas mídia social users were quick to praise the ingenuity of the knitted camera.
Um disse: “Knitted speed cameras — at least they will be warm this winter.”
