Chinese police are using stone monkeys dressed in fluorescent jackets to stop speeding - and they're not monkeying around.

The monkeys, which have been issued with police high-vis vests, have been placed along the roadside in the city of Changsha in Hunan Province, China.

One collection shows stone primates huddled around a tree glaring out at the oncoming traffic, while another is carved swinging from a branch with another sitting by his feet.

Law enforcers hope that the statues will remind drivers to slow down and reduce traffic offences.

Let's hope that drivers are not distracted by the figures too much or the move could actually cause more accidents than its prevents.
