Giant Crash Test Dummy
An impressive 34 feet tall safety-yellow crash test dummy stands in front of the headquarters of the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. It cost $63,000 and was set into place by a crane just before Thanksgiving 2012. It's designed to serve as a permanent photo-op (signs encourage passersby to post their photos to Facebook and Twitter) in the hope that it will spread a message of traffic safety.
