ROCKINGHAM COUNTY -- A new plan could make roads safer in the Belmont Estates neighborhood, where a toddler was killed in a car accident in August.
Members of the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors are talking about creating a new traffic safety panel. This group would find ways to eliminate speeding and keep people safe.
One supervisor said it's time to conduct a new traffic study in the Belmont Estates neighborhood. The Virginia Department of Transportation did a study just a couple months ago, but found no issues in the area.
Vilas Steckly, the president of the neighborhood's association, said he agrees it's time for another study.
"I think this is a good time, simply because it's still in people's minds and they will pay attention more and I think it will be very beneficial if they have another one this close to the last one," said Steckly.
Steckly said speeding is still a concern in the area. He'd also like to see the sheriff's office bring back the speed radar to slow drivers.
