PHILADELPHIA -- Changes are coming to a dangerous road in Philadelphia.

A $250,000 grant from the state will be used to help police crack down on Roosevelt Boulevard speeders.

The money will pay for overtime as police target traffic enforcement.

They'll patrol 12.5 miles of the boulevard, from Ninth Street to the county line.

At 4 p.m. Saturday, community members were holding a safety outreach meeting at 3rd and the boulevard to talk about a recent string of pedestrian accidents.

On Oct. 16, a hit-and-run driver killed Shawna Cleary, 15. She was crossing the boulevard at Rhawn Street. The driver still hasn't been found.

Shane Philson, 7, and his grandmother, Mabel Rose Taylor were also struck while crossing the boulevard. Shane was killed.

And on Oct. 10, 11-year-old Jamir Randall was struck and later died. The drivers did stop in these incidents.
