Neighbors continue to work hard to make their roads safer after a toddler was killed in a car crash.

The Belmont Civic Association met Monday night to talk about their progress.

Vilas Steckly, the board's president, says they're making small steps to make their roads safer.

Right now he says VDOT will analyze their neighborhood to see if something can be done to prevent people from speeding.

Steckly says they're also trying to get the Sheriff's Office to put up radar trailers.

He says he hopes something will change soon, especially after a toddler was killed from a car crash in their neighborhood.

"Best case scenario would be if we could actually get some speed humps put in from VDOT, which may or may not happen. The funding may or may not be there, it's probably not," said Steckly.

Steckly says the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors will now discuss the safety of their roads at their meeting on November 14th.

He encourages neighbors to attend to push supervisors to make a change. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
