Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A local father determined to get a 4-way stop at the intersection where his son died a few months ago took his petition to City Hall on Thursday.
Todd Strasser has been gathering signatures for a few weeks now, and took his petition with more than a thousand signatures to the mayor's office.
The local father says there needs to be a four-way stop at the intersection of Alexander and Bradley. Right now, there's only two stop signs.
Strasser's son Jesse lost his life in a motorcycle accident a few months ago.
Despite the fact that police say Todd's son was at fault in the accident because of speeding, Todd claims there's a lot of close calls at that intersection and something needs to be done before there's another fatality.
"In the past two weeks I have witnessed probably a dozen or more close calls," Strasser said. "I mean very very close calls. I don't think two stop signs is asking too much for Jesse."
Metro says it's not a dangerous intersection, and apart from the accident involving Todd's son, there's only been one other crash there, and it was not fatal.
Still, Todd says he won't rest until he sees change. He's vowing to hold up his sign on that corner until the stop signs go up.
The city is currently conducting a traffic study at the intersection, which should be completed some time early next week.
