    For the WIN! I like that, no license either and the police tell him it's HIS responsibility to get the car down. Awesome!
    Escaped on a technicality.

      All it took for me to slow down in my neighborhood was someone standing in their front yard yelling at me " SLOW DOWN!! " and I realized I don't need to be going 40 through here... People have pets and kids...

        I live on a very straight road (1/2 mile long) and I"m the first house in the subdivision. Cars pass my house (20mph zone) at 50 plus at times. There is a Children at play drive slow sign... yet they don't obey. It is very frustrating. I'm all in favor of driving as fast as conditions allow. 100mph on open Interstate? Go for it! Neighborhoods? Obey the limit!

          I have a four lane speedway in front of my house. Cars and bikes race from stoplight to stoplight morning, noon, and night. I've complained to the cops, and they tell me it's too dangerous to pull over speeders on my street because of the constant traffic. NO SHIT! It's too dangerous because you won't do your frickin job!

            Roll a basketball or soccer ball across the street when they come flying , it wont take to many times and they will slow down.

              I get the tractor out and put another speed bump in the road. I make it kind of diagonal because it is a lot more uncomfortable on your body to go over a diagonal speed bump.
              Once some neighbors chased a guy out to the highway, caught him at the liquor store. Guy got out of his car with a chain like he was ready to rumble, he was no match for 3 male homeowners with kids and got his ass roundly kicked.
              That awkward moment when you realize it IS your circus and those ARE your monkeys!

                Funny, but that will get you shot in Florida.

                        I have the same problem. Ours is a narrow two lane 35 mph street but it's also a short cut for people coming from and going to work. The problem arises when pulling out of our complex you can't see past the parallel parked cars. We've already had one car totaled and luckily no one killed yet by the idiots doing 50 down our street.
                        Just groovin' to my own tune.

                            always wanted to tie a stuffed dog or cat to a string and pull it across the road when the speeders go by

                            a few people have ended up in the ditch too because i live on a corner

                              I'm still thinking about the "roll a ball" approach. That's good, but where would you hide so they couldn't see you but you could see them coming? In a neighborhood, that would be tough.
