Parking is easy, just make sure to do so legally. There is a sign marking where to stand for the best photo of the Giant Crash Test Dummy.

Giant Crash Test Dummy

Spreading the word: "Click it or Ticket," "Seat Belts Save Lives," no excuses, no exceptions; wearing a seat belt is simply non-negotiable.

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.

Will a giant crash test dummy create distracted drivers? Only time and accident statistics will tell.
