Derby family puts up caution sign in town
(08/11/03) DERBY - The family of a hit and run victim in Derby took matters into their own hands to make Derby Avenue safer for pedestrians and kids.
Almost a year ago, 31-year-old Claudia Woodford was killed in a hit-and-run while crossing Derby Avenue. The Woodford family put up a sign (pictured) asking drivers to slow down. They are upset that the city has yet to do anything to avoid future accidents.
Derby Mayor Marc Garofalo said the city could allocate money at a meeting next Monday. Then, it plans to install flashing pedestrian lights where Woodford was hit.
