RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) --A grieving Richmond mother is fighting to keep a sign standing, in honor of her son who died in a car accident at that spot.

Tammy Foreshaw's son died in an accident on Cary Street near river road February of 2013.

Joel Forshaw and Nathaniel Daigle were killed when their vehicle hit several trees near the 5100 block of Cary Street Road.

She put the sign up as a memorial to him, saying if it saves one person's life the marker is worth it.

City leaders told Foreshaw that neighbors don't think the sign is appropriate for their neighborhood, and they instead asked that police patrol more for speeders.

Foreshaw plead her case to city leaders during the public comment session of Monday's City Council meeting. A vote was not made at this point.
