FORT GREENE - A tragic car accident earlier this month that left a little boy dead is bringing neighbors together to fight for safer streets.

Fort Greene residents and members of Make Brooklyn Safer chanted for change as they marched in commemoration of 9-year-old Lucian Merryweather, who died about two weeks ago after being pinned by an SUV.

Dozens of people walked to the 88th Precinct Community Council to call for police to issue more tickets for speeders and drivers who don't yield to pedestrians.

Make Brooklyn Safer also presented a new online interactive map that allows people to document unsafe street conditions in their neighborhood.
