SAN ANTONIO -

It's been about a month since 9-year-old Tatyana Babineaux was hit and killed by a truck while walking to school.

On Wednesday morning, community leaders met at Larkspur Elementary -- Babineux's school -- to unveil plans aimed at making streets safer for young pedestrians.

Those attending included city leaders, San Antonio police Chief William McManus, Northeast Independent School District Superintendent Brian Gottardy, area homeowners and Tatyana's mother, Gina Babineaux.

"Everybody's doing this to make sure that no one goes through losing a child in such a horrible way. I want no parent to go through this ever again," said Gina Babineaux.

City improvements include adding flashing speed zone beacons and re-marking 25 crosswalks in the Braesview/Larkspur area.

Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant ramps will be installed.

NEISD officials plan to recruit parents to supervise kids walking to and from school, as part of a "Walk the Bus" effort.

They'll also step up safety education outreach and add an additional crossing guard.

Many parents said they're in favor of the new safety measures.

"I think it's a great idea," said Darlene Guist, the mother of a Larkspur student. "I drive this street every day and see a lot of kids walking."

"Just to hear the fact they are going to do some improvements, that's great," said John Charleston, the father of a Larkspur student. "We need this for the kids. You can't risk a child's life, so you have to have these improvements."

Gina Babineaux said she wants drivers to do their part.

"I just want justice for Tati, that's all, and for people to remember to pay attention. Slow down. There's no reason for you to rush to get somewhere. If you're late, you're late," said Babineaux. "It's not important to get somewhere and hurt someone or kill someone."

Capital improvements in the area are slated to begin in the spring.
