PROSPECT PARK (PIX11) – Community activists are changing speed limit signs in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Members of the group, called Right of Way, have been putting up 20-miles-per-hour signs in 30-miles-per-hour zones.

The movement started last month after a 12-year-old was struck by a car and killed on Prospect Park West.

The City Council Transportation Committee is set to vote on a bill to lower the speed limit from 30 to 20 miles an hour. The Department of Transportation has since taken down the signs.
