Man Creates His Own Speed Bumps Because He's Sick Of Kids Playing Outside His Home
An Australian man has gone viral for his DIY ploy to stop pesky kids from playing outside his home.
While some people relish the sound of children's laughter, a Perth man known only as 'Steve' reckons it's an annoying trend he'd like to be moved from his premises.
The Ellenbrook bloke alleges eight to 10 kids would constantly skate on the sidewalk that is just outside his home and he's put a stop to it.
What's the best way to stop skateboarders? Make it difficult to skate.
Steve installed three planks of wood on the sidewalk, which has made it nigh on impossible to kick flip or chuck a sick ollie on the stretch of footpath.

"It's at the front of my house and it p***es me off on a daily basis," Steve told 7News. "It's not a bike path, or scooter path, or three-wheel tricycle path, its a footpath.
"You can see that they are doing it on purpose and it's the constant da-doonk da-doonk da-doonk."
He's faced a bit of criticism from his neighbours, who say he has no right to be changing the way people interact with the road.
Neighbour Richard Wells also told 7News that the three planks of wood would be an accident waiting to happen.
But fear not, the council has since stepped in and removed the anti-skating planks of wood and Steve will have to endure the 'da-doonk da-doonk da-doonk' until something else is done.
