On Jan.4,2007 my 6 yr old son Asa was hit and killed by a school bus as he crossed Scottwood Rd. at Coburg Rd, right in front of an Elementary school. By law traffic must reduce their speed there from 25 mph to 20 mph. The traffic on Scottwood Rd. going east and west does not have to stop. Many people exceed the limit even during the restricted hours. If there was a 4-way stop there then people who speed down the street would have to stop and look. Breaking their speed right at the edge of the school zone. Having a stop sign there at that intersection would have saved my son\'s life. It would make that intersection safer for the children walking to that school. Even though my son was killed there, traffic hasn\'t slowed down. Careless people are still speeding. Please help me to save our children from needless accidents. This won\'t bring Asa back but it may save another mother from the heartache I have been going through.
