He stands next to the street in the midst of the residential southern California neighborhood, pushing his palm slowly and accurately towards the ground, shouting at the fastest-moving cars to "SLOW DOWN!"
Greg Ravenelle is a self-appointed guardian of 25 mph residential speed. He manages his own high school from the street in front of his house almost every day.
Every day you can find his Ravenelle reminders for some stupid enough to drive with him with a big foot.
"First, I did it for my children when they were young, then my children became older and I realized that children were out there. If I continued to do something about it," said Ravenelle.
Ravenelle tried all the usual ways of public action to force local government. Although he would like to see all the residential speed get witnessed and had to go to a traffic school, he kindly felt for help falling on deaf ears.
"I went to the city, the mayor, the police and nothing was done. They put out one of the electronic speed battles, they could go so they could read it on a sign."
Many people Ravenelle urged not to evaluate his self-designed round school effort.
"One woman obscures me with a messy handbag with her two daughters in the car and kept moving from one side of the road all the way down the street."
No speed limitations in your neighborhood? There is no excuse. This particular principle is called "prima facie". In the dictionary is defined "obvious appearance" as "obvious or obvious". In a nutshell it is expected to know that the speed limit is 25 mph in a residential area, whether it is a speed limit or not.
And if you've forgotten about 25 mph of residence restrictions, when driving in the vicinity of Greg Ravenelle, you can count on being reminded of it.
Ravenelle Traffic School from Pavement meets almost every day, just around the time the children get out of school.
