HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- It was Houston's worst riot in modern history. It all started with a Cinco de Mayo celebration at Moody Park on Houston's north side, and ended with a police officer being run over, two reporters beaten and stabbed, dozens arrested and police cars set on fire. Tensions in Houston's Hispanic community had been simmering for a year. On Cinco de Mayo of the previous year, Vietnam War veteran Joe Campos Torres was arrested, beaten by police and the 23-year-old's body was found washed up on the banks of the Buffalo Bayou. On May 5, 1977, Campos Torres was arrested at a bar for disorderly conduct. Instead of being taken to jail, police took Campos Torres to "The Hole," an isolated area behind a warehouse along Buffalo Bayou where Houston Police Department officers could write reports, question suspects and sleep.

Campos Torres' sister, Janie Torres, said she knows all too well the road ahead for George Floyd's family after Tuesday's verdict. "I know how that family is feeling. I know what the family is going through right now. I know what they will go through, even 10 years from now, how they will feel," said Janie. On May 7, 1978, thousands of people celebrated Cinco de Mayo at Moody Park. In the early evening, police were called for a disturbance. No one is sure what triggered the violence, but people in the park started throwing bottles at police officers. More officers were called in and the situation escalated. Police cars were set on fire, local shops looted and burned. One police officer was struck by a car and suffered a broken leg. A television reporter was struck in the head with a brick, and another reporter was stabbed in the upper leg.https://abc13.com/moody-park-riots-an-ugly-cinco-de-mayo-celebration/10535201/

There was a total of 11 deaths on smart motorways in 2018. This figure rose to 15 in 2019. In a written statement to Parliament , Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said last night that for every hundred million miles driven there were fewer deaths on all-lane motorways than conventional ones. But he added: “We are determined to do all we can to help drivers feel safer and be safer on our roads - all our roads.” Meera still remembers the moment when she decided she needed to begin campaigning in Dev’s memory to make smart motorways safe. “Sitting at Dev’s inquest was unbearably painful,” she says. “It was two weeks after what would have been his tenth birthday and two weeks before my daughter was born. I was a broken mother that day. “I had already lost one son. My other son is palliative with complex health needs, and I didn’t know if my daughter Evangeline would survive from the pain and stress that I was going through. “At that moment, all I could think was ‘what are the lessons to be learned here? And how do we make what we have better?’ “My campaign started three days before my daughter was born. Campaigning with a new born baby, and managing Neel and his complex health issues, was a challenge. But it’s a challenge that, to this day, I continue to accept. “Until we achieve zero deaths, I will not be able to say that I have succeeded.” What Meera has achieved in just 18 months is quite remarkable. “I am proud that over the 18 months’ of my campaigning the Highway Code is being updated, a Stocktake in March 2020 has resulted in an 18 point action plan with a government commitment to spend £500 million, and there is a roll out of the initial stage of a £5mn education campaign , which will all help to improve road safety The update last night also includes many of my campaigning points which I feel are all positive steps in the right direction.” Meera is now setting her sights on making road networks across Britain safer for everyone. “Ultimately, we need to continue to improve safety and work collaboratively,” she says. “Further research, safely implementing available technology, improving reporting and monitoring and detailed investigations into post collision data will help make better changes for the future. “There is much work that needs to be done but I am confident that this can be achieved by all the stakeholders involved. “According to gov.uk 2019 there were close to 1,752 fatalities and 153,158 casualties of all severities on UK roads. This translates to approximately five deaths and 420 collisions of varying severity every day. “Road deaths are preventable with the right safety systems in place. And I would be doing an injustice to my son Dev if I didn’t fight to make roads safer across the network as a whole.” Meera’s position as a mother who has lost a son in a traffic collision is unfortunately one others have also experienced. But she wants people to know they are not alone and there are opportunities to rebuild parts of your life. “Grief is not just the loss of a loved one. Any loss comes with an unsurmountable pain which can be debilitating,” she explains.https://www.dmu.ac.uk/about-dmu/news/2021/april/road-safety-campaigner-whose-eight-year-old-son-died-on-a-smart-motorway-welcomes-government-pledge-to-make-them-safer.aspx
