SPEED limits are to be cut in Lepton, Grange Moor and Flockton.
The reductions follow complaints by people living in the area to Kirkburton Conservative councillors Christine Smith, Adrian Murphy and Mark Hemingway.
This led to consultations between Kirklees Council officers and people living in the area.
The reductions are due to be implemented on Wakefield Road and Barnsley Road early next year and follow other safety measures recently put in place, including better road signs and clearer road markings.
Pressure from Clr Hemingway led to improved road markings at the junction of Wakefield Road and Paul Lane at Lepton Edge which had become an accident blackspot.
The 50mph limit from the RN Golden Subaru garage to Lepton will be reduced to 40mph. The 40mph limit through the village to the White Horse pub will be reduced to 30mph.
The 60mph limit from the pub to the border with Wakefield, beyond Grange Moor, will be cut to 50mph.
The 60mph speed limit from the Grange Moor roundabout to Flockton will also be cut to 50mph.
This has been the scene of fatal accidents - including a motorcyclist who died in a head-on crash in May this year.
Clr Hemingway said:
"I have been pushing for speed limit reductions throughout the ward."
