DELMAR, Del. - A petition to reduce the speed limit on a dangerous roadway in Delmar is complete. This comes After 15-year-old Jared West was tragically killed on Providence Church Road in October. His family and local neighbors have been fighting to make that road safer for pedestrians. Recently they posted this sign, cautioning drivers to slow down in Jared's name. Now neighbors say they are waiting to hear back about the petition.
"We have gotten, along with the help of the West family, 915 signatures and sent it to Biff lee and they are going to be coming out here and reducing the speed limit," said Selena Bacon, Jared's family friend and neighbor.
Bacon tells WMDT that officials have agreed to work on reducing the speed limit.
