Video: Fla. police use bunny costume to enforce seat-belt law
Officers cited 50 motorists in the first two hours alone

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A man and a bunny were walking down the center median of Okeechobee Boulevard Wednesday morning when the bunny began flashing a sign at passing motorists: "Have a safe, hoppy holiday. Buckle up!"
Amused drivers smiled and waved at the duo. (One motorist even tried to give the man a $20, thinking he was homeless.)
But this was no joke. Both were West Palm Beach police officers out to enforce the state-sponsored "Click it or Ticket" campaign; signalling other officers stationed off Tamarind Avenue when motorists were not wearing their seat belts.
