A police officer in Lake Elsinore, California, donned a chicken costume on Thursday and crossed roads in an effort to catch drivers who failed to yield for pedestrians.
The police department conducted the crosswalk enforcement operation at five different locations in the city; two spots were located in close proximity to Lake Elsinore schools.
Police said 31 drivers were cited for failing to give way to a pedestrian - and many said they didn't even see the giant chicken. One driver was cited for speeding.
"Even though the decoy was wearing a bright yellow costume, most drivers stated they did not see him crossing the road," said the department's Sgt. Peter Giannakakos.
