"Drive sensibly, we're not a racetrack!" that's the message Illaroo Road residents would like to pass on to motorists using the major arterial link
At any time of the day Illaroo Road, which joins the Princes Highway to North Nowra, is busy.
Even more so during peak hour rushes and school pick-ups at both ends of the day.
Last Friday afternoon's (October 18) three-car crash near Morschel Avenue bought a number of residents from their homes and while none suggested speed was a factor in this latest accident, they were keen to complain about the road and the way it is used.
Christina Southwell, a 17-year Illaroo Road resident, was one of a number who spoke to the South Coast Register calling for change.
"People think this is a racetrack," she said.
"People really do treat it like a track - they fly up and down here.
"They easily do 110."
The road is listed as a 60 kilometre per hour zone.
"We are seeing too many accidents right along the road," Ms Southwell said.
"People have to be more careful and obey the speed limits."
She has called for more police patrols of the area and a renewal of the once regular speed enforcements.
"We often had police here carrying out stationary speed radar operations," she said.
"We haven't seen them for around four years.
"I'd love to see them back, it might slow some of the drivers down.
"And also work to counteract some of their driving behaviour - last Saturday we had guys doing burnouts up the road at 1pm.
Another resident, who has lived on Illaroo Road for 30 years, but wished not to be named, agreed.
"The worse thing they ever did was to make it dual lanes both way:" he said.
"That definitely turned it into a race track.
"It's like a raceway now, they just fly up and down it.
"I know it would cause traffic chaos but if people were allowed to park in the outside lanes and we only had one lane at least it would slow them down.
"People just fly down here trying to get to the lights first.
"It's getting really dangerous especially with the school and all the kids nearby."
He said he hopes when the new Far North Collector Road finally comes into being it might alleviate some of the traffic on Illaroo Road.
Another resident who has lived on the road for 14 years said he would like to see a heavier police presence.
"They used to stand down on the corner of Daley Crescent with the speed gun," he said.
"I don't know how many people they caught but at least it used to slow them down.
"I'd love to see them back doing that again."
