Fed-up residents along a busy road prone to car accidents have had to fortify their front yards with boulders to protect their homes from the vehicles.
Patricia Bourke is a resident on South Pine Road at Everton Park, a suburb north of Brisbane.
She told the Courier Mail cars have slid off the main road and hit her property five times since 2009.
Patricia Bourke has installed boulders in her front yard to protect her home from car crashes

'To be honest, I've had enough. This is my home.'
Neighbour Peter James told Daily Mail Australia Ms Bourke had spent $3,000 installing boulders at the front of her yard for protection.

'We had just moved in and needed the space for parking, so we removed it. We didn't even know why it was there at the time.'
