Campaigners are being urged to put pen to paper in a bid to crackdown on bad drivers.
Residents in Horsforth fear that someone will be killed on a dangerous stretch of road unless safety measures are implemented.
They are calling on the city’s highways bosses to make Scotland Lane safer following a number of “near-misses”.
Residents claim that the volume and speed of the traffic is excessive and could soon lead to a serious injury or a fatality.
Councillor Dawn Collins recently chaired a packed public meeting to allow residents to talk to highway officials about their fears.
Coun Collins (Cons, Horsforth) said: “Every one living around there is getting very annoyed at the speed of the traffic and the volume of traffic.
“There are traffic calming measures coming into Horsforth on the road but then the speed goes up to 60mph.
“If there are two cars on opposite sides of the road driving at 60mph then it just becomes frightening.
“There are blind corners on the road and I think there will be a fatality there.”
The meeting heard mothers with push chairs had come very close to being hit by cars speeding in the 30mph section.
Coun Collins said horse riders in the area had also reported near misses with speeding traffic. Residents are now being encouraged to keep a record of serious incidents or near-misses in a bid to have safety measures implement. They are being asked to keep diaries of events which could be used as evidence by Leeds City Council about the road. Rubber strips have been placed along the road to measure the number of vehicles travelling on Scotland Lane and the speed they are driving. Coun Collins added: “The best thing to do is to put pressure on highways and show that it isn’t just two or three people, it is the whole community.It needs the statistics behind it and we need people to keep records of anything that makes them feel uneasy or scared.”
