Anthony D'Alessandro's death inspired numerous Levittown teens to rally for a safer Hempstead Turnpike Saturday.
According to News 12, the rally was organized by D'Alessandro's close friend James Fragella.
The teens also circulated a petition to get a pedestrian bridge installed across Hempstead Turnpike, according to News 12.
D'Alessandro was killed on April 4 while attempting to cross Hempstead Turnpike just past Division Avenue. He was 16.
His death is the second in as many years of a Levittown teen on the roadway. 19-year-old Peter Thearle died after being hit at the intersection of Hempstead Turnpike and Gardiners Avenue last June.
A recent survey by the Tri-State Transportation Corporation rated Hempstead Turnpike the most dangerous road in the tri-state area.
Last Tuesday, the Town of Hempstead passed legislation designed to make streets like Hempstead Turnpike safer.
Levittown resident Tom Caro met with state officials and politicians in March to make the case for safer streets.
