Neighborhood Drag Strips


One thing that puzzles me is there types of humans who drive highway speeds in neighborhoods. Speed humps and bumps don’t slow them down either because they have no regard for human life. Sadly, it takes a tragedy before any safety measure are put in place. Here are a couple of ideas to deal with neighborhood speeders.

  • Roll a basketball into the street as they drive past.
  • Setup a lawn chair in the front yard and point a hair dryer at them then look at your smartphone as they drive past.
  • Draw elaborate potholes on the street front of your house with sidewalk chalk.
  • Rig up a child mannequin on a pulley system (work with your neighbors) so that it darts out in front of the car as they speed past. Bonus points if you fill it with red corn syrup.

Yeah, maybe don’t do that last one, may be too traumatic, and you might get questioned on why you own a child mannequin.
