Michael Jackson demands action on Potters Bar danger road
FOUR more cars have ploughed into houses after leaving a controversial danger road in Potters Bar.
More than a dozen cars have slammed into the cottages on Dancers Hill Road at the same point, despite campaigners, led by resident Michael Jackson, calling for action.
Fears someone may die on the road after more than one miraculous escape led to Hertfordshire Highways beginning work.
But due to bad weather, workers had to down tools before the safety measures were completed.
As our pictures left and right show, two cars hit the homes at the weekend.

Mr Jackson, a 60-year-old father-of-two, said not enough was being done by the authorities and added: “It’s just becoming ridiculous, you can’t walk across the front of the house, it’s so dangerous. It’s an awful way to live.”
Both he and fellow neighbours helped the shocked victims following the crashes.

Hertfordshire Highways attended the scene yesterday to inspect the site.
A spokesman said: “We were sorry to hear about this latest series of incidents and do appreciate the residents’ ongoing concerns.
“However, we should point out Hertfordshire Highways have already carried out significant works at this site and further measures are also planned for the next few weeks.
“Furthermore, we’re planning to place a much larger amount of new buff coloured anti-skid surfacing on the other approach to the site.
“These new anti-skid surfacing works have been ordered and they should be completed by February 2010, at the very latest, depending on weather conditions.”
