What's In This Coffee? Is That A Rabbit Trying To Cross The Road?

I saw this article on the Coeur d'Alene Bicycle and Pedestrian Blog and it was too good not to steal it.

Say you're driving along and you see a giant bunny trying to cross the street. Do you yield to it? Speed through the intersection? Try to hit it with your car so you can have rabbit stew for dinner? The correct answer is to yield for pedestrians wawlking along unmarked crosswalks, and a lot of drivers in Arizona who got the wrong answer were issued tickets.

That's right, that's no ordinary rabbit, it's a police officer in disguise. Here's the article.

I'm amazed the driver didn't yield with all of those police-cycles in VERY plain sight!

I saw that too. I was hoping the motorcycles were just parked there for the photo op.
