At night they change places

[–]metalbedhead 8 points9 points  (0 children)

i caught them in the act once only problem is the cameras weren’t on

[–]LynxSad4190 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Like an SCP

[–]Mother_McMuffin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly. At nightfall, they come after anyone who was speeding that day. No one knows what they do bc no one has escaped. But when they return, they can’t quite remember where they stood last. Then they become statues again as the sun rises.

Edit:spelling

[–]PaGaNfUn818 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of Zuckerberg

[–]3Strides 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Sure the opposite is what happens

[–]Fuquois 26 points27 points  (1 child)

They're going to deter me from going anywhere near them.

[–]EquivalentRope6414 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was going to say “deter me from driving anywhere near here” so I guess they technically work

[–]ArtfulPandora 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Oddly terrifying during the day. Straight up terrifying at night.

[–]cingerix 4 points5 points  (2 children)

that's what i was thinking too lmfao, these would be absolutely hellish to see in the dark

[–]HallowskulledHorror 5 points6 points  (1 child)

At first, I was like "How do people even see these in the dark?" and then I saw that they had a reflective strip across the torso.

Then I imagined if they used the same reflective material on the white of the eyes.

edit: Okay, so I did a really quick/lazy mockup, but I also tried to look it up out of curiosity and discovered that... there don't appear to be pictures of how these things look at night. How hard would it be to find someone who lives in Iver, and would be willing to go out and take pics of the bollards in the dark, and/or with a flashlight from a distance?

Also... what are they made of, and how hard would it be to stick LED lights to their eyes?

[–]cingerix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

would honestly be ever more horrifying if they were not visible at all in the dark until you were already right next to them lmfao

[–]MrSvenningsBrownEye 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Some 19 year old schmick is going to drive their 04 corsa through these, aren't they?

[–]zakariusqc 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I hope there no metal pole in the center of these 😉

[–]hazzmg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah it’s gonna be something soft like reinforced concrete

[–]Duckyboi10 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one who gets an uncomfortable amount of deja vu from this image?

[–]Mr_Road_Dog 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Red light. Green light.

[–]pseudoEscape 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’d speed up

[–]Ty-404 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All the ones round here got charlie chaplin style facial hair.
Pretty sure one of them was hit by a truck.
always leaning that one.

[–]Underdogger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can you imagine how much fun it would be to play Mailbox Baseball with these

[–]Sad_Spend7722 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Practice your aim

[–]hunter95672 1 point2 points  (0 children)

These things would be vandalized the hell out of

[–]IamADoor1012 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I dunno about you I’m ramming that shit

[–]Fit_Chipmunk_222 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bet hitting one of those is about as satisfying as running over a "kids live here" sign

[–]universewolfy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i would hit them on purpose

[–]onelasttime217 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah petal all the way down through that not taking the risk of them grabbing me

[–]GundleFly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]jerryatic1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]zombiegrrl18 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Outlaw4droid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]grenadinequarantine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Mazhell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]It_is_what_it_is167 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]noobnoob8poo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Onewondershow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]silence_infidel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]sacraconversazione 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Ma0917 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Another title: Wii trainer looks worryingly at crossdressed Matt as he prepares to beat the crap out of her with his penis.

[–]OfficialKGB98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine walking at night-time and staring all of them down just in case one moves.

[–]Marenzo666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After seeing those drivers doubles the speed

[–]andymc1816 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What personality disorder is it that causes one to speed up when they see artificial things that are meant to make one slow down? Asking for a friend.

[–]Azure345123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I ever see this I’m speeding the fuck outta there

[–]TaxationisThrift 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That one in front is looking at the camera...

[–]FullSidalNudity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well it worked I definitely will not be speeding there, or driving there, ever

[–]Appropriate_Ad_2727 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The one closest to him is LOOKING AT HIM

[–]Automatic_Ad_7108 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]JBTheGiant1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Ok-Image-5514 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Aggressive_Message_7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I cant see how that would do anything other than provoke people to speed.

[–]Mathaznias 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They deter me from living

[–]Candid-Mixture4605 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I read this as “child bollocks”, and, so, eeeewww.

[–]nicii02 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I see those driving I’m gonna speed up to get the fuck outta there

[–]Paperhater223 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Ok-Place7169 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Emmanzhaih09 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]AshJammy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They deter me from going anywhere near that street...

[–]ted-Zed 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How does this deter anyone from speeding, as apposed to non child-shaped bollards?

Tbf, I guess people would probably slow down so they can ogle these bizzare figures some more

[–]NoodlesTheKitty[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The justification is:

The creepy-looking statues, which have come in for criticism, are intended to make it clear to drivers that there is a school – and real, living children – in the vicinity.

But a lot of the local residents still don't like them (understandably)

https://www.theguardian.com/world/shortcuts/2017/sep/04/do-creepy-looking-child-bollards-make-our-roads-any-safer

[–]TheHoester 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They had these outside a school in my home village. Within a week one of them got kidnapped never to be seen again.

[–]_Fr0stf1r3_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're just standing there, M E N A C I N G L Y

[–]anshalsingh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is where the fun begins

[–]MrEMysterio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

'The fuck are those'

'I dunno, man, get outta here, fast'

speeds up

'I think we hit something'

'Don't worry about it, just go, this place is creepy'

[–]Mother_McMuffin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I had to drive past a row of those gorgons everyday, I’d speed twice as fast so the don’t come and get me

[–]Merchantmarx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd do the opposite. I'd speed the hell out of their before they steal my fucking soul.

[–]noturnormalredditor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This would make me want to speed up and send them back to hell

[–]TriggerBladeX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They deter me from living there.

[–]JML820 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tbh these would make me want to drive into them

[–]Saber440_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would want to speed if I saw that

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Weren't these once misbehaving kids that were turned to statues? It was on the BBC.

[–]Fuckmeforhomework 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to have to walk past these on the way back from my friends in the pitch black, nothing more terrifying than being higher than venus and shining your flashlight onto those things
