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

The only time I have ever signalled anyone to slow down on my street was during a freezing rain storm when I had witnessed a dozen fender benders (no exaggeration) in front of my house within the span of a couple hours. I live near a stop sign and there was black ice... every.single.time a car was at the stop and another was coming down the street they collided. Given the weather people seemed to understand why we were signalling.

If someone's speeding down the street in general I might tsk and mutter something under my breath but I can't imagine that signalling them would do much good so I probably wouldn't bother. I'd rather take control of my situation, my kids, as best as I can than think that I can influence the behaviours of strangers.
