Re: What do you do when cars speed down your street?

So I have three young kids, and I had a neighbor, while walking her dogs, yell at me to slow down as I was driving my two older kids to school. it has happened twice now. This is the first time I've lived in a subdivision. The speed limit is 25 and I was probably going 27-28 both times she yelled. I suppose I was technically breaking the law, but I feel her actions were pretty barbaric. I'm used to a more urban setting and city driving where people (including small children) keep out of the street. In subdivisions people treat the street like an extension of their yard. I need to get used to that and slow down I guess. Either way, I feel like letting kids play or go into the street sets a bad precedent. It doesn't matter if I'm going 28 or 24. If your kid runs out as I'm driving by, he/she may get hurt.
