SPEED humps are being replaced in a Huddersfield street.
The move is being made after a petition to Kirklees Council about Fernside Avenue, Almondbury.
One man complained that car thieves were using existing humps as ramps for kicks, driving at high speeds.
Fed-up Peter Ainley said his last three cars had been crashed into and wrecked.
Now replacement flat-top humps are being built as part of a £240,000 project.
Part of the road was closed during the daytime yesterday and today for work to be carried out.
New pavements and road resurfacing are included in the scheme.
New kerbs to help people get on and off buses have also been installed.
Workmen will be back next month.
Part of the road will again be closed between 8am and 5.30pm for three days from August 11.
A 58-name petition calling for action on the road was handed to Kirklees Council last year.
Sheila Stott, secretary of Almondbury tenants and residents' association, said at the time that the road had become a death trap.
A council spokeswoman said the alterations had been timed for the school holidays in order to keep disruption to a minimum.
