Slow Down or We're Calling Mom! Virginia police warn speeders by threatening to get mothers involved

Slow down or else -- or else we'll call -- your MOM!?!?!

That's the message the police in Haymarket, Virginia put out to drivers last week as they cruised through town.

Police officials say they are happy to have received so many compliments and smiles but hope drivers understand the sign's message.

"We meant this to be funny but on a serious note, please slow down (25mph) when driving through town," officials posted online. "We are a walking town and want to keep our residents safe. Thanks!!!"
