An uniden­ti­fied elderly woman was get­ting fed up with dri­vers speed­ing past a cross­walk near her home in China. Local cops offered lit­tle help, so the resource­ful granny tried slow­ing down dri­vers with the aid of a strate­gi­cally posi­tioned inflat­able girl­friend.  She tied it to a tree next to the cross­walk, appar­ently hop­ing that rub­ber­neck­ing motorists would slow down at the sight.

A 30-year-old Atlanta woman is OK after acci­den­tally swal­low­ing a but­ter knife.
