In a clip posted on TikTok, Rob can be heard ranting, “I built a fake speed camera van so idiots would slow down where I live – spoiler alert, some people really didn’t like it.”

He then explains the road he lives on and how the speed limit is set at 30mph, but says there’s always “some Muppet” flying by.

Rob says: “It does my tree in”.

The video then cuts to footage of a vehicle having previously crashed into his front yard.

His four-year-old daughter Orla also shares her opinion, saying of speeding cars: “Slow down! It’s 30 for a reason!”

So fed up, Rob shared how he put the speed camera sign on the van to make it look real – and then sat back and watched the drivers react.

He said MailOnline he thought of his daughter’s safety and tried to take effective measures.

Rob said, “Whenever Orla asks to go for a walk or to go into the woods, in the back of your mind you’re like, ‘What am I going to do if a car comes flying down the hill?'”

He says Staffordshire Moorlands District Council has been trying to slow traffic but locals need to make a difference sooner rather than later.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said no reports had been filed by members of the public about the van and it did not appear that Rob’s actions broke any law.

He said: “As part of the Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership, the force welcomes and encourages community feedback on road safety issues.
