Pedestrian Killed In Bronx Memorial Art

What a beautiful way to remember loved ones who have been sadly taken from family members in fatal traffic accidents. Dante Curry was killed in the Bronx by a driver who was traveling 65 mph in a 30 mph zone. The driver received a $60 speeding ticket.

Paul Ajlouny, New York car accident lawyer gets traffic accident claims practically everyday.   “These are heartbreaking and probably a good reminder to everyone that we share the streets as pedestrians and drivers.

The street art as a memorial to the accident victims, would make people think twice when crossing a street and or driving.” states Mr. Ajlouny.
