Fed-up Glenroy residents say it's only a matter of time before they're "doing CPR on the front lawn" as drivers continue to risk lives, despite new road safety measures.
A Nissan Navara lost control on Tenbrink Street on Monday and crashed into a fence, which was only recently repaired after a similar incident.
The fence divides the properties owned by Scott Rollings and Robert Woods, who ran outside after hearing a bang about 9.30pm.
"It was gone within 30 seconds so we only saw the back of the car - we didn't get the number plate," Mr Woods said.
"Because of the slight dip in the road, if they cut in too quick, they're going to lose control.
"You can hardly sleep, because every night you hear them - racing up the street.
"It's only a matter of time before somebody is going to get seriously hurt and I'll be out here doing CPR."
Police and Albury Council inspected the damage on Tuesday, where a green P-Plate and the letter 'N' torn off from the black Nissan Navara could be seen.
It appears the ute spun around after losing control on the corner of Wilkinson Street, its rear and side crashing into the fence - allowing the driver to flee so quickly.
It is the latest crash in a spate of incidents that were the focus of a community campaign, which prompted Council to undertake a traffic review and subsequent upgrades.
New 50km/h speed limit and stop signs have been installed on Tenbrink Road, but Mr Rollings said drivers continued to act dangerously.
"At 10 o'clock, just after the crash, there was one car that slowed down at the corner because he saw us, and then he hooned off - he would have been doing 100 kilometres [per hour]," he said.
"I've been here three years and I've had four major accidents, and probably a dozen minor accidents.
"I couldn't even count how many times the 'keep left' sign has been taken out.
"After this last crash in May, Robert got on to them [Council].
"My wife had been putting the recycling out 30 seconds before and if she had been out there, she would have been hit."
In that incident earlier this year, which also involved a P-plater, the car mounted Mr Rollings' driveway and crashed into his side of the fence.
The driver's details were taken and the fence was fixed, but now the other section of the fence fronting Mr Woods' property has been destroyed.
"We have insurance, but how are we supposed to prove what happened?" Mr Rollings said.
"I don't want him [the driver] to get in trouble, but he should have stayed around."
Mr Rollings hoped a proposed guardrail to be installed in front of his and Mr Woods' properties would better protect their homes.
Council announced in September what upgrades would be done to roads in the area after undertaking a traffic review.
Terry Hayden, who has led the residents' push and dropped 500 letters into letterboxes, inquired about the progress of the works on Tuesday.
"I did get in contact with Andrew Saunders at the Council and he told me that they're going to try and get the guard rail in sooner rather than later and that they were waiting on a contractor," he said.
"They have to wait for the weather to be better [to resurface Tenbrink Road].
Mr Hayden said drivers were ignoring a number of new safety measures.
"People are ignoring the signs and going in on the wrong side of Watson Street," he said.
"They have reduced the speed limit from 60 to 50, but that doesn't worry too many people.
"I'm hoping this resurfacing gets going and for Rob and his neighbour Scott, that Council gets that guardrail up.
"I don't know what they can do in regards to idiot drivers.
"More of a police presence would be good."
Mr Woods, a retired wardsman, said "no matter how well you do the roads, it comes down to the driver".
"They're not obeying the road rules. When it rains, they're not driving to conditions," he said.
"I worked in a hospital for over 34 years and I've seen what accidents do ... It's getting out of control and somebody will die here."
Parking trailers and cars in front of houses to protect the buildings from out-of-control cars, warning school bus drivers against stopping at corners and keeping children away from front yards are just some of the measures residents have taken to minimise personal risk.
The Border Mail revealed in July there had been at least five accidents in as many months, including a car through the fence of the Lots of Tots Early Learning Centre on June 12, and countless more near-misses.

Albury mayor Kevin Mack said in a statement that works on Tenbrink Street, where a car went through a resident's fence on Monday for the second time this year, would be completed soon.
"Council has been working with a private sector supplier to provide a specially-designed barrier railing for the Wilkinson/Tenbrink intersection, with plans to install the barrier within coming weeks," he said.
"Also, we're preparing to improve the surface of Tenbrink Street to provide better traction for vehicles.
"We'll continue to work closely with the community to make traffic in the area as safe as possible."
Mr Mack said council was approached by concerned Glenroy residents and implemented safety improvements in October.
"The changes included speed limit reductions, stop signs and a trial closure of south-bound access to Watson Street," he said.
"Traffic counters and cameras monitored the area, recording many speeding drivers."
