    A badly-placed bolt has drivers in one New Jersey town hitting the breaks.

    A new sign, which lists the speed limit as 15 mph was bolted to it's post right between the numbers 1 and 5, so it appears the speed limit is 1.5 mph, The Tri-Town News reported.

    One local resident, Barbara Dixel, said she saw one driver jam on his brakes as soon as he turned onto Dag Hammarskjold Boulevard in Howell, New Jersey.

    Dixel said she watched as the car make its way down the road at a pace that was barely perceptible. The driver was apparently attempting to abide the sign's directive to go less than 2 mph.
