The All-Seeing Zero Accident Spirit

This little guy was given to my oldest daughter at a safety workshop. His two-fold mission is to exhort Hong Kongers to attain the laudable goal of 'zero traffic accidents' - and to act as a handy paper holder of course. What makes him truly odd, apart from his car/hat, is the matching set of 'wheels' on the back of his head. Initially I thought this was a bizarre attempt to complete the car motif; then it occured to me that this was in fact a second set of eyes, strategically placed to assist him in his mission. I also like his wrap-around toga/belt, constructed of a green swath of accident free highway; note that it also covers his spirit genitalia - modesty and traffic safety, stylishly combined.
