THE BRONX - Throgs Neck residents are trying to get speeding cars to slow down and pay attention at a busy intersection in their neighborhood.

According to neighbors, drivers constantly fly through the two stop signs at Philip and Revere avenues, which has a history of accidents. Just a few months ago, five people were hurt when a car failed to make a stop, hit another car and then rammed into a house.

Residents say there are many schools in the area, and they worry about the safety of walking students. They hope someone will come out to inspect the streets and make some changes.

State Sen. Jeffrey Klein says he's already working on it. In a statement, he said in part, "I take any public safety risk very seriously. Since these accidents, we have partnered with the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assess potential dangers at the intersection."
