A Hertfordshire woman's campaign calling for immediate safety improvements to the A505 now has thousands of supporters.

There are fears that unless something is done to close off what she calls 'dangerous junctions', then many more drivers will be killed or injured.

The support for Lynsey's campaign has grown so much that she now has the backing of the local newspaper.

In the last couple of weeks it has been inundated with stories of accidents and near misses along the A505.

Lynsey is realistic about the prospect of a redesign of the road. It would be costly but she says it would save lives.

In the meantime she's calling for an immediate reduction in the speed limit to reduce the risk for motorists.
