Action has been demanded over noisy motorcyclists revving their engines as they speed through Isleworth.
The noise of growling engines along London Road has become intolerable in recent weeks, according to one woman.
Audrey Uko, who lives just off the busy thoroughfare, in College Road, said: "The noise is horrific. It's happening every day and it was four times in 20 minutes this afternoon."
The 80-year-old said she had reported the matter to police and Hounslow Council but was unable to record the make and registration number of the vehicles responsible as her home does not directly overlook the road.
She wants to know if other people have been affected by the noise and, if so, urged them to take down the drivers' details and report them to police.
A police spokeswoman said there were powers to prosecute drivers where there were reasonable grounds to believe a motor vehicle was being used to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to the public.
She urged anyone affected to record details of the vehicles involved and the time of the disturbance so they could pass this information to police.
