A PENSIONER is pleading with motorists to slow down after four crashes near the entrance to her driveway.

Suzanne Kaur, 74, who lives at York Avenue in Fartown, has seen four cars crash there in as many years.

The latest incident happened when a concrete post was dislodged and fence panel shattered.

Her daughter Harri Saroy explained: “My mother is elderly and she regularly comes out to the driveway to get fresh air.

“If that is what a car can do to concrete I dread to think what it could do to her. She wouldn’t be able to move fast enough to get out of the way.

“This has happened four times now – does someone have to die for something to be done about it?

“We don’t want talking, we want action.”

Speaking of the latest incident she said: “We had the TV on and were sitting in the back of the house so we didn’t hear anything.

“It was only the following morning when we saw the damage.”

Taxi driver and community leader Manjit Singh, whose mother lives next door to Mrs Kaur, said: “We have campaigned for traffic calming further up the road but now this section needs addressing.

“There are elderly people living in this area and to have cars speeding down to get on Bradford Road it is frightening for residents.”

A spokesman for Kirklees Council said: “The road had been looked at and compared to some of the other high priority routes, but if the resident could contact us to give us the details we will have another look at the situation.”
