Kathy Dibbs says it's important for all the relevant stakeholders to get together to come up with a plan to address safety concerns along Lighthouse Road.
The Port Macquarie resident has lived at her Lighthouse Road property since 2012 and has witnessed about five accidents in that time.
Mrs Dibbs said it's only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or killed.
On Monday, July 27 a motorist allegedly lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a house on Lighthouse Road. Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
Mrs Dibbs believes motorists don't drive according to the conditions and often exceed the speed limit of 50km/h.
"This road is very busy and it doesn't have footpaths or cycle-ways," she said
"It's very narrow and windy.
"We also get a lot of tourists on the road, due to the Lighthouse attraction and whale watching vantage point."
Her grandchildren aren't allowed to play out the front of her home as she is worried about their safety.
In 2019 the Lighthouse Road upgrade from Matthew Flinders Drive through to Tacking Point Lighthouse officially opened.
The work included the widening and resurfacing of Lighthouse Road from Matthew Flinders Drive through to the lighthouse, the installation of kerb and guttering and the replacement of stormwater services.
Mrs Dibbs grow up in Port Macquarie and moved in 1979 with her parents.
She said the section between Pacific Drive and the eastern side of the Matthew Flinders Drive intersection has not been widened or straightened in that time.
Lighthouse Road is a main arterial road for the area, along with Bangalay Road and Matthew Flinders Drive.
Mrs Dibbs said Lighthouse Road differs from the other two because there is no kerbing or traffic slowing infrastructure.
Children often walk along the Lighthouse Road to access the bus stop.
One of Mrs Dibbs' children was forced to jump into the gully at the side of the road because she was worried she would be hit.
"A bus came one way and a truck came the other way and she was terrified," she said.
Mrs Dibbs has voiced options for short term solutions, if a long term plan to widen the road can't be established.
She said buses are too big to travel along the narrow road and should be banned. Signage to notify motorists about concealed driveways is another solution.
James Black lives next door to where the accident happened on Monday, July 27.
He has lived in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region for the past 25 years and said Lighthouse Road has become extremely busy.
"Trucks, buses, cars and bikes use it as a race track as far as I'm concerned," Mr Black said.
"I think that would be the feeling of most people in this area."
Mr Black said the road is only going to get busier with time and an upgrade should be carried out to address safety concerns.
