Bridgeport senior citizens say speed bumps must be installed in their neighborhood after a 78-year-old woman was killed in a car crash this week.
Joanne and Alex Davidson, who live on the North End of Bridgeport, say there's a desperate need in their neighborhood for immediate safety changes.
The couple says they were horrified by the death of a fellow senior citizen right down the street from their home on Wednesday.
Sydel Kugell was killed in a two-car crash that police say was caused by speeding.
The crash is the sixth serious crash in this area over the past two years, two of which were fatal.
The couple says they are singing a petition that's circulating right now calling for speed bumps.
They say the most recent crash will not be the last one.
Two days later, residents held a protest calling for immediate safety changes in the North End. It was organized by City Councilwoman Michelle Lyons, who says the council has subsequently voted to ask police commissioners to study the need for speed bumps.
