Kurt Smith of Douglas County, Colorado is a father of two that is fed up with cars speeding in his neighborhood and he just happens to work for a sign company.

"Car! You guys all out of the street," he warned the neighborhood children. "I want to keep them safe, as well as my own. ... I put up some legal stop signs but illegally placed them."

"People fly up and down the street sometimes 50 miles an hour," he said.

Smith knows he can get in trouble, but said if it can prevent an accident this won't be the last of the stop signs.

Smith has not been charged with a crime but Douglas County Sheriff's officials say he could face a misdemeanor for hindering transportation.
