Sarah constructed a DIY set of bumps to slow the traffic down.

"I think three [crashes] in two days was the record," Sarah told Seven Sharp.

Sarah has been lobbying the council since the start of the year who have agreed to an upgrade, but the wait could be months.

Sarah is passionate about saving lives and ensuring the safety of others on the road including motorists and pedestrians.

"Whatever repercussions I may suffer [for intalling the road bumps without permission], it's still less than anyone who gets hit," she said.

The latest crash happened just this month on 4 October.
