    You guys should move to my hood. Loud exhausts 'round here get you blown. By me though.

    You're still focusing on giving advice to the parents who are doing this. You can't control those people. You're identifying what OTHER people can do to improve their behaviour. The OP can only control what he does.
    When I'm feeling centered, this is the approach I advocate. Controlling other people's actions is insane. Controlling your response to thier actions is more likely to improve your life.

    This is why I cant stand driving in communities like Aurburn Bay or Cranston for eg. Its SO dense that everyone can see and hear everything from 5 houses down. Cars parked with just barely enough room to squeeze a road in.

    So glad we chose an older area (older homes that needed help). We could have lived in these house farms if we chose to, but chose not to because of this.

    I'm not familiar with the "Karen" reference but I'm pretty confident it's the "I'd like to speak to the manager" haircut lady.

    I don't think my neighborhood is any different but the folks who put up a sign near the entrance to our Circle live right on the corner. I think everyone's got a right to play in front of their house but let's face it, kids do silly things and dangerous things. It's up to both the parents to educate on safety but also for motorists to be vigilant especially if you know what's in the area. I think we all know that in this thread.

    These parents are often out in front of their house watching their kids too so they're not using the sign as an alternative to parenting; it's just another tool for them albeit annoying for me when they put it out too far. They also park their truck where it becomes a blind spot, unfortunately. They play mostly in the red zone but also with kids from the house across the street and for the most part they seem mindful about traffic.

    There seems to be enough give and take so the sign doesn't bother me now. I know what's around the corner everyday. I just give them a wave when I drive past with the understanding that I see their kids playing daily and all parties are happy.

    I consider myself lucky haha. Couldn't imagine living in an area with some of your NIMBY-Karens

    I yell at people when they drive by on my street...makes me feel important. But no one ever drives by...so I don't ever get to feel important.

    On the topic of loud vehicles, my car is extremely loud (can be heard from 2.5km away uncorked) and Iíve never had my neighbours complain. I did however have a cop yell at me for doing 40km/h down 5th ave last summer when @diamondedge was doing 60km/h in front of me...

    That's just because you're really, really ugly.

    haha i always glare at people if i feel like they're driving too fast on my road, it's not like it really goes anywhere so no need..

    My car was reallllllly loud so i would always just idle down my alley as quietly as i could... now it doesn't have an engine so everyone probably likes me better.

    I'm glad I don't have a loud vehicle anymore. My ailing ears cannot handle cabin drone or the noise anymore, really. Haha.

    Prior to selling my vehicle, I went back to a stock exhaust and it was like I had gone deaf, it was so quiet.

    Its interesting how different people react to different noises.

    To me, I cannot stand fart cans where it makes the car sounds like a pissed off bee. Raspy and annoying.

    To me, its all about the bass - all my (former) bikes and cars have had exhausts modded for this. I also carry some of the biggest subs around.

    However, bass travels more so other people might feel the opposite?

    Dashcam. Once you get some video of them doing really stupid/unsafe things, like pulling in front of you etc. post it up on social media.
    Extra points if there's a Facebook group for your neighbourhood, and you post it there.

    Sleep with their wives and video tape it. Bonus points if you can get all together at the same time. Post on the internet and make a few bucks

    hah, they are the neighborhood. They the only ones that go to community events and always center of attention from what I understand (I know the developer rep who feeds me information). I'm the "Asian punk with an Audi".

    Instead of downshifting yesterday at 11pm while they having a sit on the driveway and watch the community party I drove extra slow as per everyone's advice. I got 6 stares and 12 fingers. LOL.

    I live on a small circle and constantly there are kids running from behind parked cars, chasing toys, riding their bikes right off the sidewalks between two cars into the road. Almost hit a kid once doing 15km/h foot on the brake anticipating the kid had no idea I was coming, I slammed on the brake he swerved on the bike ate shit and the parent yelled at me.

    It's pretty fucking simple, I don't drive on the sidewalk, so don't play on the road.

    Threaten to retaliate by calling child services and saying the adults are putting their kids in harm's way?

    Next thing you know...
