WATCH: Does This Speed Limit Sign Go Too Far?

August 7, 2017


A mother in Green Bay is getting both good and bad reactions from a speed limit sign that she put up in her neighborhood. In fact, some may say the sign is a little too threatening. 

Jenny Thompson put up a sign tells motorists they won't need a lawyer if they hit her kids becuase of speeding. "That's not a threat, that's a promise," the sign warns. 

The speed limit is 25 miles per hour on the suburban street, but neighbors have told local media that the speed limit is often ignored. 

Thompson says she put the sign up last year after a vehicle hit a child on a bicycle. Police told the local NBC affiliate that they don't have any record of the accident. 

Some neighbors are worried that they sign will cause more vandalism in the area.
