GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Homeowners on the West side are taking it upon themselves to warn drivers to slow down.

Nina Ward says she spends a lot of time yelling at cars flying by her Willis Avenue neighborhood, and she's had enough.

"We have all these kids kids back and forth down the street, and I don't think anybody does 25 down here.  They are doing 60 down the road," she said.

Ward's sons Mason and Caleb, along with their friend Elijah, made a sign to tell people to pump the brakes.

Last July, FOX 17 told you about Ron Ward and his sign that said "Want a Ticket? 25 not 55."    Ward, who lives on Richmond Street just a few blocks from Nina Ward, has another sign this summer: "Kids Beware, Speeders Don't Care."

"Might as well warn the kids because the drivers don't give a crap," he said.
