NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Almost a year since 6-year-old Mia Decker lost her life after getting hit by a car in a North Las Vegas crosswalk, lights have been put in and more signs have been posted to prevent another tragedy.
Mia’s mother, Michelle Terry, and people in the close-knit community she lives in raised the money to install more signs and flashing lights at Camino Eldorado and Tropical Parkway -- the intersection where Mia was killed when hit by a distracted driver in a crosswalk.
The community hopes the improvements will prevent another tragedy. But take a look at what happened when News 3's Paul Matadeen went with terry to check out the new set-up.
Terry said what we saw was proof that there is still much more work to ensure pedestrian safety ahead. She's calling on police to make sure reckless drivers pulled over. She said she also hopes jaywalkers will be ticketed, too.
