A US man sets up fake speed trap to curb smelly deer carcasses



Associated Press

A Pennsylvania man says he used flashing dashboard lights to mimic a police speed trap — but only so he could slow down vehicles speeding past his rural home and killing deer and endangering people.

Fifty-seven-year-old Ricky McMillen tells media that he used the flashing lights on his car because he’s been complaining about speeders for years and getting few results.

What he says he has gotten is very smelly deer carcasses along the road in Donegal Township, about 80km/h southeast of Pittsburgh.

State police charged McMillen on Thursday (local time) with impersonating a public servant and displaying improper lights.

McMillen has been mailed a summons to appear for a preliminary hearing on 15th of December.
