BROOKLYN - The New York City Department of Transportation plans to install traffic signals on Kent Avenue in the wake of a deadly accident that killed a Brooklyn family earlier this year, Councilman Steven Levin says.

Levin says he hopes the traffic signals will be placed at Wilson and Hooper streets by the end of November.

Raizy and Nathan Glauber were killed on Kent Avenue in March when a hit-and-run driver struck their livery cab. The parents-to-be were on the way to the hospital where their premature baby was delivered but died a day later.
