Fed up with people speeding through his neighborhood, a Bakersfield dad took matters into his own hands.

He put up a sign in his front yard that reads, "Warning! You hit my kid, you will be shot!!"

Phillip and his wife, Danielle, love watching their kids play in the front yard, but they've had a few close calls with fast drivers. They are hoping this sign is enough to get people to slow down.

Police say the parents aren't breaking any laws with their sign, but they don't condone it either. They say anyone with safety concerns in their neighborhood should give them a call.
