Cardboard Cop "Scarecrow" Protects Bicycles in Massachusetts

Effective, and doesn't lobby for expensive bennies

A roving UHub photographer reports:

"This T cop at the Alewife bike cage startled me recently. Until I got closer and saw that he was…a cardboard cutout!"

An MBTA spokesman says:

"That's the only one…and police report that it has made a difference."

He adds the cutout is of real-life Officer David Silen.
