Printed in Pravda..the USSR newspaper..ok I read weird stuff 2002-09-27 19:43:00 Lithuanian Police Goes Plastic (0) Three hundred cardboard police officers started â€œworkingâ€ in the city of Vilnius on pedestrian crossings. New â€œpolice officersâ€ represent cardboard silhouettes, they are the same size as human beings are. Cardboard policemen â€œwearâ€ police uniform as well. They are meant to discipline schoolchildren on pedestrian crossings near schools. Lithuanian road police have tested another disciplining novelty this year. There is a life-sized plastic imitation of a police car on one of busy highways of Vilnius. The situation on the road has improved greatly.
