If you are driving and approached this pot hole, would you slow down? Many motorist would try and straddle it but many others would hit their brakes hard and slow themselves to a crawl.
Well if you fall within the latter group, the joke is on you. The “pot hole” is actually a removable mat which can be placed anywhere cops want to deter motorists from speeding.

You could be right but that is the idea. To make people slow down (even if it is startling and could cause a motorist to dangerously swerve). As you can see, I am not convinced that this is a good idea.
