People in Chalfont St Giles say a new housing estate has increased traffic volumes so much it has now become dangerous. They want the county council to take action to prevent more crashes.
Local parent Rosie Cazenou cannot believe the authority's attitude. She said: 'If somebody gets killed, whose fault is it?
'And besides, why should we await four deaths before we can have a sign saying Go Slow? They've created the problem but they won't even give us a sign saying 'watch out''.
David Rodgers, of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, agrees there have to be some sort of guidelines.
He commented: 'What they do is to look at the level of accidents across the whole area and then draw up a priority list for those with the worst problem or where it is treatable'.
