A new weapon against parking violation?

 

No, this is not the way Copenhagen municipality punish parking violators, though some would actually find it a rather good idea. It's a piece of street art by artist Magnus Fuhr, who was inspired by a photo of an accident in Grand Canyon and decided to try to recreate it on central Copenhagen. If art is a question of getting attention this sure qualifies. On the day it was made the police were called and they couldn't decide what to make of it, until the artist got out from his nearby hiding place and told them what it was all about. It still gets the attention from tourists and locals alike as they pass it, do a double take and whip out their cameras to get the proof.
