Mannequins could be to blame for recent Oklahoma car crashes

Display Mannequins Could Be to Blame for Recent Car Crashes in Oklahoma

Window displays at a new adult store could be to blame for a number of crashes in Oklahoma City.



A KOCO 5 News viewer emailed the station saying, "I just had a minor fender bender looking at the mannequins in the window of the new Hustler Hollywood store. We both (drivers) agreed that it was going to cause lots of accidents."

The viewer, Gary, would only provide his first name. He said the store, located in the 500 block of South Meridian, is distracting.

According to Oklahoma City police, there have been eight crashes in the surrounding area since Hustler Hollywood opened June 12. While none of the crashes are directly attributed to the mannequins in the window, drivers said that the business definitely raises some eyebrows.

"I think they're fantastic," said Jerry Murphy. "I find it hard to believe that anyone would crash looking at them. I actually think they could be a little lewder, but that's just me."

Most drivers who KOCO 5 News spoke with said that they didn't have a problem with the displays.

"You see worse things walking in the mall and in the movies," said Diane Ray Sanders. "Tell distracted drivers to look at what's going on in traffic and stop worrying about everything else."

A spokesperson for Hustler Hollywood said the displays are tasteful and are decent. Store management said they have no plans to take them down.

The viewer who originally contacted KOCO 5 did not file a police report.

What's your take on this? Are the displays too racy or not?

Wonder what would happen if a real, live, attractive female was walking along the street in a pair of shorts and a halter top? Would distracted Oklahomans be driving into buildings, other cars and mowing down pedestrians? Sounds more like its a case of someone looking for an excuse for their poor driving than it is a case of the mannequins distracting them.

I've driven A1A through Daytona Beach repeatedly in the summer and seen thousands of lovely ladies prancing along the streets with tiny pieces of cloth covering their tingly parts, and I don't recall ever hearing of a single accident caused by the meat parade.

Driving is a priviledge, not a right. If that distracted him to the point of an accident he shouldn't be allowed to drive. The auto industry building cars to drive for us when "distracted" is the absolute worst idea I ever heard of.

"I think they're fantastic," said Jerry Murphy. "I find it hard to believe that anyone would crash looking at them. I actually think they could be a little lewder, but that's just me."

Even half-naked mannequins lustfully turn on Jerry Murphy. He doesn't see how that can cause vehicular accidents with males lusting after half-naked female mannequins?!?

Each one deserves every wreck in which they're involved, and their private insurance rates should go up high. The financial reality is everyone's insurance rates go up when involving selves in lusting after half-naked female mannequins in a window display. That's what happens when people their keep their brains in the gonads, and everyone else pays the rising costs they cause with vehicular accidents. Same with playing with cell phones, causing people to go into severe deep depressions if those cells phone weren't glued to their bodies at all times.

It's for sure his pillows need to be washed very often, as twice a day. Bet that airbag put a burn on the old wad in the hand.

Just another embarrassment for us Oklahomans. The same people probably walk into glass windows when they pass Victoria's Secret in the mall. The truth of the matter is, he probably has never seen a woman in Oklahoma that was built like that.
