Montana Woman Uses Hair Dryer To Slow Down Traffic
A Polson woman is getting speeders in Finley Point to slow down, using a hair dryer. A photo sent out on Twitter in August showed Patti Bumgartner sitting in a lawn chair, holding a red solo cup, and pointing a hair dryer at passing traffic like a radar gun.
After hearing about what Bumgartner was doing to help enforce the speed limit, M.H.P. Trooper Pesola made her an honorary trooper.
The legend of the "Junior Trooper" from Montana is going viral now that TIME and CNN picked up the story.
