SPEED cameras are desperately needed on a lethal dual carriageway in Huddersfield, claim residents.
In the latest crash at the notorious spot in Bradford Road, Fixby, two men were lucky to escape injury when their Citroen Xantia skidded out of control in the 30mph zone.
The accident happened at about 11.40am during Sunday's torrential downpours.
In July, 2002, a man died after his sports car smashed into walls and gate posts at the same spot on the Brighouse side of the Fixby roundabout. Both vehicles were travelling in the direction of Huddersfield.
John Stainthorpe, whose home overlooks the crash site, said it was time something was done.
"The car went through three driveways and embedded itself in a wall. There was petrol all over the place and we were lucky there was not an inferno."
He said it was a miracle no pedestrians were killed.
"My wife had just been out walking a dog and another neighbour had just got back from a jog."
Kirklees Council is currently installing large speed signs.
Mr Stainthorpe fumed: "We have more road signs than cow pats in a pasture - and they are as much use."
Neighbour Peter Bell said: "The council refused us the speed camera which would solve the problem, even though we assured them that speeders would ignore their bigger signs."
