(WHDH) — The Haymarket Police Department in Virginia has gone viral for its new approach to deterring speeding drivers.
A flashing message board posted in a 25 mph zone in the town reads: “Slow down or we will call your mom.”
For some, a call home may be more stressful than being slapped with a ticket.
“We meant this to be funny but on a serious note, please slow down,” the department said in a Facebook post.
