Default Russian police employ Brad Pitt to fight speeding

MOSCOW Brad Pitt is accustomed to stopping passersby in their tracks. The Hollywood heartthrob's next job is slowing traffic in Siberia or so Russian traffic police hope.

A Russian newspaper reports that cardboard cutouts of Pitt dressed as a traffic cop have been placed by the most dangerous intersections in the city of Omsk.

It's the latest move by authorities in their endless battle against speeding. Traffic accidents in Russia are among the highest in Europe.

The campaign seems to be working. Omsk officials say accidents are down as star-struck drivers ease off the gas to gaze at the unusual image.

The paper, Argumenty i Fakty, quotes Dmitry Ziryanov, a local official who came up with the idea as saying Pitt is "kind of like a colleague for us."

I wonder how long it'll be before drivers get used to the sight of the cutout and stop slowing down. I know I'd slow down at first, if it looked like a traffic cop was watching the road and then closer examination showed it to be a cutout of Brad Pitt. If I saw it all the time though, I'd learn it wasn't really a threat and I'd probably ignore it.

Yeah I suppose you wouldn't always notice its a cut out but yeah they could have a plan to catch you, like have it a cut out for 3 days of the week then change it to a person standing in the exact same place.

Weird idea though.

That could be a good idea, a guy of similar height, similar hair. Especially if the cut-out is wearing a hat.

Oh! Or cameras in his eyes! Like the ones they use to catch red-light runners.

Or since they've already got Mr Pitt to pose for a cut out just get him to do it I'm sure he does nothing better in his weekends

Oh man. You so just got rep for that. I don't know if that was a Family Guy reference or just a clever joke, but that made my day.

I'd be tempted to run him over if I was driving.
