PEOPLE in Crosland Moor have thrown their support behind a campaign to improve safety on busy Blackmoorfoot Road.
Clr Shahida Awan, a Kirklees councillor representing Crosland Moor electors, has launched the campaign.
She said she had received a flood of complaints from local people about the road.
Their main concerns are vehicles breaking the 30mph speed limit and parking on double yellow lines.
The parking blocks access and makes it hard for traffic to navigate the road.
Clr Awan said there are also worries about the lack of pedestrian crossings.
Clr Awan said: "People have seen many minor accidents on that road that just don't get reported. Everyone says how dangerous this road is."
Clr Awan wants Kirklees Council to take action to improve safety at Blackmoorfoot Road.
She has been gathering names on a petition in support of her campaign.
Parents with children at Dryclough Infant School and Crosland Moor Junior School have signed the petition.
All the businesses on Blackmoorfoot Road have also pledged their support and have copies of the petition on their counters for customers to sign.
Clr Awan said: "I have been writing to the police and highways following people's complaints for about a year.
"I realised it was getting me nowhere so I thought I would get a co-ordinated campaign going and show some power behind the cause.
"We want our voices heard and want Blackmoorfoot Road to be safe for local people."
