(WSAV) Some Hilton Head, South Carolina drivers are asking why there’s a chicken crossing Point Comfort Road. In this case, he wants them to slow down so the neighborhood children are safe. 

Every day, Logan Cambron suits up in white feathers, rubber feet, and a chicken head and starts his shift with a sign and radar gun.

"We were out here in the rain, in this hot suit, for two and a half hours yesterday stopping cars," Cambron said.

The ‘chicken man’ has lived on Point Comfort Road in Hilton Head for 25 years and says he’s sick of drivers speeding down his street.

"We’ve got over a dozen kids down this side of the neighborhood," he said. "I’ll stand out here with the radar gun, and if somebody’s doing more than 3-4 miles an hour over the speed limit, I walk out in the road and make them slow down."

Cambron says the suit makes people laugh instead of getting angry, but its inspiration is not very funny.

"We have pet chickens and they like to go across the street to the neighbor’s house because the neighbor feeds them," he said. "One would cross the street and she got hit and run by a truck."
