    This sign recently went up outside a house in our town.

    [​IMG]

    What are passing motorists meant to make of this?

    Are autistic kids prone to running out in the middle of the street screaming without looking for traffic?

    What the fuck are we supposed to do? :dontknow:

    I suspect they would like you to be careful.

    I don't think that's too much to ask.

    Edit: Fucking DBD

    Basically, just slow your car down.

    I've seen sighs that say "Deaf Child Area", but never one of these. Expect to see them more often, its an epidemic. :(

    That's the thing. With a deaf kid, you know what you're getting -- can't hear, so hit the brakes instead of the fucking horn.

    But autistic? I thought there a spectrum of autism disorders.

    If you ask me, this sign has set back the cause of autism 20 years! :derp:

    I worked at a nursing home for handicapped kids in 1988 and there was a young man there - he was autistic. :sad:
