A soon-to-be first grader has convinced adults at city hall to reduce the speed limit on a residential street in Vaudreuil, Que.
Six-year-old Avaley Kevens helped collect signatures from a majority of residents living on her street to lower the top speed to 30 km/h from 40.
“It’s like more safe than the zooming cars,” Avaley told Global News.
The initiative began last March when the family car she was traveling in was sideswiped by another when they were backing out of their driveway.
Avaley was rushed to the hospital with injuries to her head and leg.
“Big explosion went off, air bags out of the car. She’s screaming and crying,” Avaley’s father, Gary Kevens told Global News.
