Her neighbours claim they have noticed a remarkable difference since she started holding a hairdryer over her garden fence.

Speaking to the Nottingham Post, Ms Brooks said she had come up with the idea, after a family tragedy.

She had created a cafe in her front garden at home in Hucknall to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care, following the death of her son-in-law.

While spending time doing this, she noticed cars speeding along the road. A friend told her about an idea originating in France, where someone had pointed their hairdryer at cars to slow them down.

She explained: ‘This street is the main road onto the estate so it is busy, and it’s also used as a school drop off point.

‘They come up on their scooters and quadbikes showing off to the sixth form girls, acting like a male bird of paradise.

It’s all, ‘look no hands’ but it will soon be ‘look, no teeth’.

Speaking on the video for BBC Nottingham, Ms Brooks said: ‘Quite simply, by picking up one of these and going like that, I have never seen so many people’s brake lights go on – and all it is, is a hairdryer.

‘If they don’t like it, that’s tough. I live here, my friends live here, my friend’s children live here and if we can’t be safe in our own street, where the hell are we going to be safe in the world?
