The city of Concord could soon be asking people to slow down on a stretch of Treat Boulevard where a speeding teenaged driver killed a father and daughter who were riding their bicycles last year.
When it comes to speeding on the part of Treat Boulevard in question, no one knows the consequences better than Stoorai Nuri.
"I'm hoping nobody else loses their family -- a child or a loved one – because…it's not easy," said a tearful Nuri.
Her husband Solaiman and nine-year-old daughter Hadees were riding their bikes on Treat near Oak Grove Road last year when the 17-year-old driver of a SUV lost control, hitting and killing them.
Only 12-year-old Hannah survived.
"I've never experienced anything like that in my life," said Hannah. "Not even close."
Prosecutors say the driver was going as fast as 71 miles per hour.
He pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter. Now this mother and daughter are focused on supporting a new city proposal to lower the speed limit from 45 to 40 miles per hour.
A study by the city of Concord found a large majority of drivers using Treat Boulevard are going about 46 mph. That's just one mile an hour over the speed limit. However, while KTVU was monitoring the area, plenty of people were seen going faster than that.
Since the beginning of 2010, the study also found there were 21 crashes on that stretch of Treat Boulevard, causing 15 injuries and leaving two people – Solaiman and Hadees – dead.
At the site of an old roadside memorial dedicated to the father and daughter, KTVU found one faded heart remaining.
The Nuris say even small changes on the road would be a lasting tribute.
"If I can save one or two lives or help two or three kids slow down, I'll feel like I have achieved something in my life," said widow Stoorai Nuri
A public hearing on the proposal is scheduled to be held this Saturday.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
