Teka-teki

Oct 27, 2010

We came across this scene while driving at the kampung area of Tokushima. Finding it amusing, I took a few photos of them. Can you guess why these life-size dolls were placed in the road junction?

Life-size dolls in human clothes, pants, and hats with different poses

The answer: They were placed in order to remind road drivers for safe driving.

Did you get it? Can you actually link road safeties to these dolls?
Perhaps these dolls look so real that drivers are given the impression that they are watched by these 'people' hence they would drive with a better manner?
But to some people who are 'kay poh chi' like me, who likes to look left and right instead of watching front, accidents may happen on the road instead! :)

Can you imagine spotting these dolls for the first time...in the middle of night? Alone....?
Brrrrr....scary, scary!

Yeah...hahaha.
My Japanese friends said, some other places had big gorilla statue la, and so many different statues of animals. But if this happens in Malaysia, they would be lost the next day itself. So, definitely not applicable in Malaysia. hahaha...
