NC Group Threatens Local Speeders With Paintballs

An anonymous group is warning motorists in one North Carolina city to slow down or consider going to a body shop.

WRAL-TV reported on Monday that Angry Neighbors With Paintball
Guns are fed up with what it calls Durham's inability or unwillingness to deal with speeders.

The group has posted signs throughout the city that warn motorists that it is enforcing the speed limit with paintball guns. The group says drivers who don't get off the gas will be shot at.

Police in Durham are painting a different picture for the group.

They say the signs could be a distraction to drivers and that it's
a crime to shoot a paintball at a vehicle.

People in one neighborhood say they like the signs because they
bring attention to the problem.
