MY FAVORITE THINGS: PART 3: Plastic Safety People


Believe me....he works. People do slow down.

I have 2 of them and I put one on each side of the street when the kids are riding their bikes around in the street since we don't have sidewalks.

If traffic is particularly busy or I'm feeling annoyed by the cars, I'll put them IN the street and kinda close together. A car has to slow way down to pass between them.

It amazes me how well they work.

I've had these
Step2 KidAlert guys for well over 5 years. I leave them outside in the winter in a side storage area and they've really hung in there. Must be some sturdy plastic.

They really are one of my favorite things because I am the Safety Patrol and I like easy solutions to annoying problems!
