After a dog is hit by a car, a gruesome sign has the entire neighborhood talking.

We spend a lot of time with our dogs and often treat them as if they were family.

It’s impossible to conceive what any of us would do if someone in our life, whether accidentally or not, injured this quasi-family member. Consider a loving and joyful dog bounding about the world with bright eyes and a wagging tail.

In a second, a speeding automobile rips through their world, killing their vitality and taking their future.

The accompanying pain is unlike any other because the loss of a loving canine companion directly affects one’s spirit.

Unfortunately, many individuals have gone through this and had to mourn their beloved dogs as a result of careless driving; the author of this piece certainly understands how it feels.

After losing their own dog in an accident, one family decided to take a stand and posted a notice that astonished the neighbourhood.

They put up the sign on their own property to caution against speeding cars. In reality, many people would regard the communication as a threat.

“We buried our dog last week because you won’t slow down,” said the sign. “If you hit one of my children, your family may bury you.”

A photo of the sign was posted to Reddit, where it received a flood of comments.

“I’ve never understood why people drive so fast through neighborhoods…or parking lots.” Seriously…what logic is there in that?” One user made a comment.

One of the venues where the item was uploaded was Facebook. The majority of users across all platforms backed the warning’s author.

“I like the sign. In neighborhoods, people drive far too quickly. More than 20 is an excessive speed. Kids on bicycles. It happens when kids are playing in their own garden and a ball ends out in the street. So, what is the problem? People are f**king fools, that’s why. “Plain and simple,” commented one Facebook user.

“You’re dead right! One of my dogs escaped, and the woman who ran him over didn’t even slow down. I simply ran over him. “The same thing could happen to a child,” another person commented.

Other online users, however, disagreed with the dog owner. Many people believe the man allowed his dog too much freedom.

“I don’t feel sorry for them in the least.” My neighborhood is experiencing the same issue. Everyone believes it is a dog and cat-free range country. “My dogs never leave my property without my permission,” remarked one reader.

“Always keep your dog on a leash!” “If you cared about your pet, you’d take better care of it,” said another.

“Speeding is bad, but it’s your responsibility to keep your dog and kids off the road,” said another.

Unfortunately, this may not be the last time we see a notice like this in one of our neighborhoods. Kevin Jackman, of Middletown, New Jersey, had had enough seven years before.

He felt increasingly agitated as people sped by his house, knowing that children lived and played close. He decided to make a placard that would attract attention and have an impact since he was determined to stop it. As a result, a provocative sign with a forceful message was created.

It served as an effective reminder to slow down and put safety first for drivers. The notice read:, ”Last week, my dog was tragically struck because you chose not to slow down. If you hit a child, your family will be left burying you.”

Kevin Jackman said that his placard was inspired by a social media statement; possibly he noticed the older Reddit post.

When you see the sign, who comes to mind? Which side do you favor, the dog owners or those urging them to take responsibility? Let us know in the comments!
