Offbeat: Seismic Siren New Police Tool


badgeTaking a brief break from the photo scam melee, we bring you this blurb from Wired News regarding a new police siren that can actually be felt:

…Fed up with earbud-wearing, cell phone-yakking motorists who don’t heed sirens, police across the country are turning to a new attention-getting tool–low-frequency sound waves so strong they can actually be felt up to 200 feet away.
[…]
It feels like a tremor inside the vehicle,” says Tom Morgan, police market vice president for Federal Signal, which makes the seismic sirens […] the system emits a 10-second, 109-decibel burst through two subwoofers mounted on the patrol car’s bumper.
Not to be outdone, beleaguered photo scam company American Traffic Solutions is rumored to be developing a vibrating road that actually shakes loose the change from driver’s pockets as they pass photo enforcement zones.

    If they don’t get their quota for the day, they’ll turn the road shaker on to “Take Yo Money.”

    They don’t want money,
    they only want tokens
    or checks and banks
    will only give tokens
