"This is not Texas Motor Speedway," said Natalie Willett. "This is a residential neighborhood that people live in, people have a life in, they go walking, they walk their dogs, they have families, just slow down, have some respect."
Willett and her husband Chad put the sign up in front of their home Sunday. After living on 3rd and Fulton for almost a decade, they've finally had enough of people speeding down their street.
"They need to slow down, and if our rude and crude sign brings some awareness, then that's all we can do," said Willett.
Willett said she hopes the sign at least makes people stop and think about not speeding. As for what the sign says, she was just trying to get driver's attentions.
"The only way to make a point is to do something as crazy as that, would we ever act on it?," said Willett. "I dont know, never been in that situation, pray to god I never am in that situation."
A big inspiration for taking action was the family's seven year old son, Colton. He's a second grader who enjoys playing outside. Even under family supervision, Willett said she's concerned for his safety. "If anyone here loses control because of their speed, and he's on the sidewalk, that's it," said Willett.
In the eight years they've lived at the residence, Willett said they've seen cars whiz up and down the street year round. October causes more concern for Willett because of the upcoming holiday season.
"Just slow down, especially right before Halloween when you're about to have a bunch of trick or treaters, walking up and down these streets," said Willett. "You've got mean people doing 60 up and down these streets."
Willett said they've talked to the police about the issue, but police encourage them to call when someone is speeding by and that they need to get the license plate number at the same time to help police.
