I hear there's a lot less crime in Japan. I thought it was because of all the giant robots and mysterious technology, but these bunny-shaped police lights might have something to do with it. After all, if a cop pulled up with one of these cute rabbits atop his cruiser, how could you resist?
Specially built by Patlite, a Japanese company that specializes in warning equipment, the Osaka Prefectural Police Department has reportedly purchased 800 of the rabbit strobe lights to be fixed to police vehicles that patrol areas around schools. Now criminals will be carried away in shame under flashing bunnies, surrounded by cheering kids.
