Resident creates controversial sign for speeding drivers

A store owner in Red Hook has taken a new approach at trying to get drivers to stop honking their horns and to slow down

RED HOOK - A store owner in Red Hook has taken a new approach at trying to get drivers to stop honking their horns and to slow down while driving in the neighborhood.

Bryan Laus says he put the sign up, which includes profanity, because he sees cars speeding down Van Brunt Street daily. He says he's also nearly been hit by cars along the road several times.

Laus says he has taken the sign down because a neighbor asked him to, but that he plans to put up another sign in its place.
