One heroic grandmother was sick and tired of drivers speeding through her neighborhood and endangering her beloved grandkids. But instead of simply getting mad, she decided to come up with a creative weapon. And it’s pure genius!
Reports of reckless driving within residential areas seem to be at an all-time high. And there’s just something about irresponsible drivers that makes a parent’s blood boil. Do these careless human beings not understand that their speeding puts others — especially young children — at risk?
The statistics are horrendous to say the least. Last year alone, 5,376 pedestrians were killed in car crashes in the U.S. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 1.6 hours.
One brilliant grandmother of four from Nottinghamshire, England, says her unique method stops reckless drivers in their tracks.
After her neighborhood’s new “Watch For Children” signs failed to slow down passing drivers, this woman was forced to get creative and take matters into her own hands — quite literally.
Standing in her front yard, this protective grandma bear points her defense mechanism towards the road as her grandkids swing on the playground behind her.
Her weapon of choice; a hairdryer.
And yes, you read that correctly. By pointing her makeshift “speed gun” at oncoming traffic, this grandmother successfully stops reckless drivers in their tracks.
The unashamed grandmother explained, “This is a very fast road and there are a lot of children in this area. I am worried that one could be killed or seriously injured.”
You just have to see it to believe it:
Some call it crazy, I call it sheer brilliance!
Who would’ve thought that a simple hair dryer could serve a higher purpose. It may be time to bust that hairdressing tool out of retirement and give it a shot myself!
Thank God for grandmas! What do you think about this creative weapon? Please share if this fearless grandma brought a smile to your face today!
