MILWAUKEE -- It does not matter that the stretch of S. 6th Street just south of Lincoln Ave. is a school zone, just as it did not matter that the pavement was slick with rain.

Drivers here continued to fly through the intersection where a mother and child were hit last week by a speeding van.

The 18-month-old girl died.

Thomas Walker III is charged with hit and run in addition to her death.

People who live with the speeding thought this tragedy would be the end of their speeding problem, but when Speedbusters stopped by with the radar gun, it was just more of the same.
