The Boston Globe reports Sam Balto placed laminated cutouts of the player's face on pedestrian crossing signs outside an elementary school in the city's Roxbury neighbourhood Wednesday. Balto says he watched drivers speed through the 20-mph zone for months. The teacher used a speed radar monitor and posted the results on Twitter, clocking drivers between 30 and 56 mph.Crosswalk posts were recently placed in the street near the school, but Balto says drivers would hit them and knock them over.

Drivers can't seem to stop hitting a giant rock in a suburban parking lot, despite it being an inanimate object surrounded by yellow-painted curbs.

"I don't know how you miss this big rock or how you cut the curb so tight you end up jacked up on the rock," said Brangwyn Jones, who lives in the northwest community of Sage Hill.

"I'm trying to wrap my mind around it, as are many of the community members."

After several collisions, the Sage Hill Rock — as it has become known among area residents — is now set to be removed from a retail shopping complex that is still being developed in the relatively new community.

Keep the rock there. 1 ответ 0 ретвитов 2 отметки «Нравится». 4:30 am no parking in my parking area backed out of driveway. Got stuck. Thankfully I knew lots of bartenders that could get me out.

3 crashes on the weekend

At least three crashes were documented in photographs posted on the weekend to a community Facebook group that Jones administers.

Mark Nguyen took one of the initial photos of a SUV lying on its side next to the rock.

He said he was on his way to the nearby Walmart around 1 p.m. Saturday when he spotted the bizarre scene.

Photos of two more vehicles that had become hung up on the rock were also posted by the group. One of the vehicles was a small sedan with low clearance but it still managed to get on top of the large stone.

An employee of the nearby bottle depot, which opened in mid-October, said the rock was placed there to prevent motorists from driving over the curb but it's now going to be removed by Riocan, the company that manages the retail complex.

The Rock has confirmed why he can't run for President

  The Rock has confirmed why he can't run for President In wrestling, he was the 'People's Champ' and in Hollywood he is the champion of the box office, but The Rock is a little unsure whether he will become the champion of the White House. Rumours have been circling for months that The Rock, a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson, will be throwing his hat into the Presidential ring come 2020.

'This kind of made our weekend'

Jones said no injuries have been reported, as far as anyone is aware, and the incidents have become a bit of a running joke in Sage Hill.

"To be honest, this kind of made our weekend," he said.

"I was very surprised how many people were into the Sage Hill Rock."

When the community learned Monday the rock is to be removed, many on the Facebook group were upset at the loss.

"No! Leave it!," one person posted. "It's far too entertaining!"

"Poor misunderstood rock," added another.

Jones said the rock "has become a part of us."

He added that he's thinking of organizing a type of "memorial" service for the rock that would raise funds for charity.

"Might as well make the best of this Sage Hill Rock," he said.
