    This is great, I have done it in the beach and it is really funny see people actually stop and jump! over the imaginary rope in order to evade it. The trick is to do it at sunset...

    my uncle got in deep **** for doing that when he was a kid. cops came, ran into the woods after him and caught him. My grandad had to pick him up at the station and laid the smack down on him.

    This is hardly original. Years ago, my Grandma told me that she played this trick when she was a kid. :D

    I heard there were some people doing that last weekend at Otakon, in downtown/inner harbor Baltimore. They stopped when some guy pulled a Glock on them...

    I've done it, no driver in New York would fall for it. They just see two crazy people on the sides of the road holding nothing. And your credibility is trumped by other cars making their way through not paying attention to you.


    I've come up with a new idea, invisible sheet of glass.

    Ahhh, forgot to mention they caused someone to wreck. Driver thought there WAS a rope.

    Standing on the side of the road is all well and good.

    Perhaps this would be a useful way to slow down traffic where drivers often speed. Let's suggest that the police use this method. The supplies are certainly cheap!

    Funny!

    At first I thought they might raise the rope to let the car pass. That would have been cool.
