After a family dog was allegedly killed by a speeding driver, the family posted up a warning sign.
“We buried our dog last week because you won’t SLOW DOWN,” the sign said, according to TheBlaze. “If you hit 1 of my kids your family may be burying you.”
The image was first posted on Reddit. It’s not exactly clear where the sign was posted.
One person noted: “Am I the only one who doesn’t like people who won’t keep their dog contained in their yard and then upset that their dog is endangered?”
But a dissenter said: “A person should NEVER be going fast enough in a residential area that a dog can’t simply avoid you.”
While there is no way to verify whether a dog was actually killed or if it was created to prevent drivers from speeding, it is a message worth noting.
Usually, signs that warn motorists to slow down have a more subdued message—such as: “We love our kids. Slow down.”
Woman Posts ‘Embarrassing’ Insurance Photos
A set of photos an Arkansas woman took for her mom’s car insurance company are spreading like wildfire on the internet after a hilarious miscommunication.
Alyssa Stringfellow, 25, was applying to be added to her mom’s car insurance policy. Her mother told her that she would need to send the company her driver’s license number, date of birth and “a picture straight on and a picture taken from each side”.
“She gave me his email address and I emailed the information along with the pictures that night,” Stringfellow explained, referring to her’ mom and her mom’s car insurance agent.
“The following day, I check my email and find THIS response: ‘Hi Alyssa, I am going to need pictures like you just took, except it needs to be of your vehicle. :)’”
Her mishap quickly went viral after she posted the photos online.
“Needless to say, I was ridiculously embarrassed, and everyone at work had a good laugh at my obvious misinterpretation,” she added. “The crazy thing is, I asked my mom to take the pictures after I got off work, and we discussed why in the world he would need pictures of me, never once considering it was supposed to be of my car.”
Lower Car Insurance?
According to the Insurance Information Institute, there are, in fact, ways one can lower their car insurance costs.
“Prices vary from company to company, so it pays to shop around. Get at least three price quotes. You can call companies directly or access information on the Internet. Your state insurance department may also provide comparisons of prices charged by major insurers,” according to the website.
Meanwhile, before you buy a new car, compare the insurance prices.
“Car insurance premiums are based in part on the car’s price, the cost to repair it, its overall safety record and the likelihood of theft. Many insurers offer discounts for features that reduce the risk of injuries or theft,” its website says.

For older vehicles, “consider dropping collision and/or comprehensive coverages … If your car is worth less than 10 times the premium, purchasing the coverage may not be cost effective. Auto dealers and banks can tell you the worth of cars,” the website says.
