Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The busy street in Summerlin where a trick-or-treater was killed is now the site of a growing grassroots movement to slow drivers down.
Signs were visible near the growing memorial on Wednesday, telling cars to be careful.
12-year-old Faith Love was struck and killed on Sandstone Bluffs near Sahara and Hualapai by a drunk driver, but residents of the area claim speed is more of a danger.
Community members hope Metro police will step up patrols in the area to catch drivers who are disobeying the 25 mile-an-hour speed limit.
When Action News held a radar gun to vehicles in the area, nearly all were speeding.
"It's like a freeway," one resident said. "People are just flying up and down."
"You know when people are not obeying the speed limit," another nearby resident told Action News. "It was only a matter of time before there was an accident out here."
