NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Family members of the seven Bronx residents who were killed in last week’s Bronx River Parkway crash returned to the site of the accident on Sunday morning.

Juan Gonzalez and Juan Rosario told WCBS 880 reporter Alex Silverman that they had not seen the spot where their wives and daughters were killed, but thanked the Mayor for working to improve safety on the road.

As they drove past the new concrete barriers, where a bouquet of flowers marks the accident spot, a procession of livery cab drivers honked their horns seven times to represent the dead.

Fernando Mateo, representing the Federation of Taxi Drivers, told Silverman that it is time to put the eyes and ears that use the city’s roads to use. He suggested making a list of danger spots so that the city will know where work needs to be done.

“And we want to help the city prevent accidents, like this, from happening,” he said.

The Federation is also helping the family. They have already raised $50,000 in donations.
