RESIDENTS are outraged their street has become a dumping ground for unregistered cars.
They say five abandoned cars have been left in Market Street, Smithfield, since October 2012.
To date, their attempts at lobbying Fairfield Council for their removal have gone unheard.
The Champion had received no comment from the council by press time.
While residents say they have their suspicions as to how the cars have ended up in their street, the culprits have yet to be named.
"Market Street has turned into hell alley," Joy Camilleri, 65 said.
"I complained to the council in October last year about an unregistered Subaru with no number plates being dumped in our street but the car is still there."
Neighbour Jim Gibbs, 81, said he wanted the cars removed.
"It's a pain in the ass," he said. "We get out in the morning and we see vehicles parked across the road day after day, they never move.
"In October 2012, there were five abandoned cars — all without registration plates — and the council hasn't done anything about it.
"I want them gone because they are a hinderance and people living next door have trouble getting their cars out of the driveway. It's a residential area, not industrial."
Another resident, Pam Hall, 73, said she was also concerned about heavy trucks being illegally parked in Market and Brenan streets, Smithfield.
"Over the years, I've made several complaints about this to the council and the owner of the trucks, and I've had diesel thrown on my garden and driveway," she said.
"It's like flogging a dead horse. It makes me extremely upset because the weight of these 10-tonners exceed the legal limit to travel on these residential streets.
"I'm retired and get woken up every morning at 4am by them warming up.
"We just want peace and quiet. It gets to the point where you think, 'let's just pack up and move' but I've been here for 51 years and don't want to do that."
