Although the weird method worked well in Hungary, it was not a Hungarian invention. The idea comes from Scotland, where villagers dressed in fluorescent jackets and pointed hairdryers at cars to mimic police using speed cameras in a bid to deter fast drivers in Moray.
Székkutas is a little village in south-eastern Hungary, where the number of traffic accidents caused by speeding is very high. On average one person dies each year because the drivers do not observe speed limit as they drive though the village.
