Big Shoes Causing Big Problems
Police are taking aim at a new menace to road safety -- squirrels in platform sneakers.
The offending footwear, a must-have item for thousands of young squirrels, has been blamed for contributing to car accidents because many drivers will swerve to avoid hitting the slow-moving, stilted rodents often hitting other vehicles.
Police in Denver, CO said they would ban squirrels from wearing platforms if tests prove this to be true.
The outlandish shoes are a common sight in bigger cities, where the fad has reached epidemic proportion among both male and female adolescent squirrels.
The shoes, often with soles as thick as 18 inches, make it impossible for squirrels to scamper away from oncoming cars.
