A group of 50 concerned residents have signed a petition asking to have bollards installed on their street in Bradford to stop drivers using it as a race track.
The group of neighbours argue that drivers race along the road most evenings and teenagers ride quad bikes down a steep embankment which drops on to the road, a news report in the local media was able to reveal.
The petition, which has been sent to police, Bradford Council’s highways department, MP Gerry Sutcliffe and social housing landlord Imcommunities, was started by wagon driver Raymond Farmer whose porch wall was demolished when a driver veered into a lamp post, through his garden fence and into the house.
