In 2016 residents raised concerns regarding the speed of vehicles travelling past Dubbo's Peppercorn Childcare Centre. Three years later, residents say their fears have been ignored.
Several community members petitioned for the implementation of speed bumps near the preschool, but no speed bumps or zones have ever been developed for that area.
However resident Amy Fieldus said speed bumps and speed limits are still very much warranted along Leichhardt Street, the street in which Peppercorn Childcare Centre is located.
"It is such a narrow street, and some motorists continue to drive along there without caution, especially during peak drop off and pick up times," Ms Fieldus said.
"There is an accident bound to happen along there one day. And god forbid it to be an accident involving a family, especially one from Peppercorn."
Peppercorn Director Nick Sykes currently supports the idea of further road safety implementations near preschools and encourages the Roads and Maritime Services [RMS] to look into installing speed bumps on their street.
"Anything that could help to make the community safer should be looked into," Mr Sykes said. "I think speed bumps are something the RMS should consider."
Redgum Child Care Centre Director Deanna McCarthy believes school zones should be implemented around all preschools.
Dubbo mayor Ben Shields said those lobbying for the speed bumps are 100 per cent correct.
"In the eyes of the RMS, it doesn't comply with needing speed bumps. I certainly think those lobbying for them have a good point," he said.
"On one hand you cant say schools need 40 km/h speed zones and identify they are a risk and then ignore child care facilitates."
The Daily Liberal is awaiting a response from the RMS.
