There’s human trafficking and then there’s human traffic coning. The latter is less terrible than the former.
The Kingston police in London probably received a couple of interesting calls on Halloween night because, well, people tend to act a little more foolish when they are in costume. But there was one call in particular that was so bizarre that they just had to share it on social media for everyone to see. A photo was posted on the Kingston police department’s Twitter feed with the caption, “A very interesting #Halloween style call out for our emergency response team!” As seen in the photo below the “emergency” was “Males dress as traffic cones blocking the road like traffic cones.”

Dan Theochari, a guy who was just passing by the action, tweeted a photo of the human traffic cone blocking traffic. “They were just standing in front of the taxi and the bus not letting them get past and taking pictures of themselves,” he told the Evening Standard. “I didn’t actually see the police I was waiting for a taxi but I saw it and it made me laugh.”
I have to commend them for being 100 percent committed fulfilling their roles as traffic cones.
This isn’t the first time that we have seen human traffic cones on the streets of England. Earlier this summer, a group of men who were part of a bachelor party were causing traffic jams and pissing drivers off in the seaside town of Newquay.
I guess traffic coning is a thing now. Humanity just keeps on evolving.
