Meet super-granny Jean Brooks, who has found an innovative way of curbing reckless driving in her area.

It all began for Jean when her son-in-law passed away. She decided to soak herself into fundraising for Marie Curie Cancer Care. She created a café in the front garden of her home and people came to the place from time to time.

One day, she noticed cars were speeding up and down the road in front of her home in St. Mary’s Way, Hucknall, and a friend told her about how hairdryers were used by someone in France to stop speeding vehicles.

Jean decided to adopt the method and teach the reckless drivers a lesson. Her hairdryer makes fast cars slow down as they mistake it for a handheld speed camera.

She became a viral sensation after BBC Radio Nottingham filmed her in action with her hairdryer. Jean contacted the radio station after they shared a video of quad bikers and motorcyclists who drove dangerously, and told them she had a solution.

Through Jean’s hairdryer wielding powers, she has been able to not only make the community safer but bring them closer.

She has gotten several gifts from people who viewed her story. One man delivered about 200 toys to her home after watching her video.

The clip, which was uploaded to the BBC Radio Nottingham Facebook page, has been viewed about 54 million times.

Jean wants the hairdryer to symbolize communities taking their streets and roads back from reckless drivers. Her advice to all is:

"Don't say anything, don't do anything, just carry a hairdryer."
