Traffic Sign 'Slow, Heaven Is Full' Draws Controversy - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
An elderly couple, fed up with speeding cars in their area put up a unique sign reading, “Slow. Heaven is full!”. George and Mary Truell live on a lane in East Devon, UK where the speed limit is 60 miles per hour, but they found crossing the road to be far too difficult.
The couple would like drivers to reduce their speed a bit, which will make the area less of a risk and hopefully minimize accidents. However, the safety effort is not without controversy. Devon County Council claims to have received complaints concerning the sign and wants the Truell’s to remove it. The married pair counters, saying that the sign is on their own land and it will remain there for now.
During the summer, a woman in China had a creative way to prompt drivers to slow down. The elderly female, frustrated with fast driving cars through a pedestrian crossing near her home placed a scantily clad sex doll by the intersection.
