Patents: A fair cop
But a British patent application, already claims monopoly on the idea. In patent application 2 , Mark Napper and Derek Alderson claim to have invented the idea of making a cutout shape of a police car, and painting it or sticking on a photograph to make it look like the real thing. The cutout replica is collapsible so that police can move it around before motorists spot the trick.
The cutout stands on legs that must be hidden by undergrowth. To add to the illusion, the decoy has warning lights and a siren that can be triggered remotely or by preset timer.
