Police department puts up ‘naughty’ or ‘nice’ radar sign for speeding drivers

If you haven’t found the time to write Santa Claus a letter this holiday season, fear not — a new speed radar sign in Vermont can tell if you’ve been naughty or nice. Radar signs set up near Chester, Vermont, that usually display a vehicle’s speed along with a prompt such as “slow down” will instead show drivers a green “nice” sign for obeying the posted speed limit or a red “naughty” sign if they’re going too fast. The Chester Police Department announced the change with a set of photos Wednesday. “We received a request direct from the North Pole to remind everyone that Santa is still making his list and checking it twice,” the department said in a Facebook post. “Make sure to have a safe and happy holiday season!” It’s not known how long the prompts will be used.
