PARADE

The tiny village of Rich Valley, Alta., lies on a busy highway, bracketed between signs that say “Speed 25” but which are apparently invisible to most motorists. A couple of 10-year-old boys got tired hearing their elders

complain about the speeders without ever doing anything constructive about the problem. They fixed things in no time by stringing an old - fashioned black rubber hose across the mainstreet highway which made most drivers jam on the brakes as fast as if it had been a real speed trap.

Parade pays $5 to $10 for true anecdotes. Address Parade c/o Maclean’s.
