An American mum has gone viral for installing speedbumps outside her house to stop her neighbour speeding by ‘every single day’
In the clip, which has amassed more than 12.5million views, the mum-of-two said the driver speeds past her house ‘every single day despite being asked nicely to slow down’.
‘We have two young children whose safety I’m worried about. I can’t handle much more before I take action,’ she wrote showing videos of the car driving by her house.
The ‘Karen’ took matters into her own hands by ordering three speedbumps from Amazon and installing them along the road.

She said the speedbumps have slowed the lead-foot driver down but thinks they may be ‘a little angry’ with the road additions.
‘This is how she drove by this morning. Needless to say they worked but check out how she drives after the last one. She may be a little angry,’ the mum wrote over a clip of the neighbour negotiating the speedbumps.
The video drew in thousands of responses from viewers mocking the woman calling her a ‘petty Karen’ and claiming the neighbour was not going fast enough to warrant installing speedbumps.
‘I’ve seen Barbie 4x4s go faster than that,’ one person joked.
‘Can you please show the video on normal speed? I think you accidentally may have slowed it down,’ another sarcastically added.
‘Tell me you have too much time on your hands without telling me,’ a third laughed.
‘My pettiness would have driven into the yard around them,’ said a fourth.
The mum hit back at critics who chastised her for ‘letting her kids play near the road’ and questioned whether she was allowed to put speedbumps on the street.
‘Not a ‘road’… shared right of way. However I’m more concerned with her losing control and coming in my yard,’ she said in the comments.
‘My neighbours were 100 per cent on board because she’s almost hit them head on,’ she added.
