RESIDENTS living in Bournheath have called for action to be taken on a busy village road before someone is seriously injured or killed.
The Standard has been contacted about the traffic on Rocky Lane which residents say travels far too fast along there.
One told The Standard said: “A lot of people use the route to walk their dogs or to go to the local pub.
“The speed they come down there at is ridiculous - it is really dangerous.
“There are no signs up and no footpath so you have to walk in the road.
“Residents take their lives in their hands each time they use it.”
She added the issue was also causing problems for those living there who were at risk when getting off their driveways.
And, she said, a number of cats had been killed in the area after being hit by cars.
“We’re worried next time it wil be a pedestrian.”
A Worcestershire County Council spokesperson said: “Rocky Lane is mostly rural and speed is not currently considered a problem.
“This, plus the cost involved, which would inevitably be funded by the taxpayer, means a speed limit reduction is very unlikely.”
