    Prosecutors are expected to read a transcript of the 2005 testimony, saving for the very end of their case Cosby's own words about using the 1970s party drug "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'"

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - The family of a deadly hit and run victim is demanding safer streets for kids in Port St. Lucie. Dyanna Gil was walking to a bus stop last month when she was hit and killed by a car. Tuesday, the city's mayor is vowing to put safety first for others.

Where Dyanna Gil was walking when she was hit, there are no sidewalks, no lights in this area, and Lucero Drive is a narrow street. Her family says changes must be made now. Gus Arzuaga says, "We have the power to change the system in Port St. Lucie." Gus Arzuaga is leading the charge. He's doing it for his stepdaughter Dyanna Gil. He says, "I plead to you and the city of Port St. Lucie to take some action."

Last week he wrote a letter to Mayor Joann Faiella, and Tuesday he met with the mayor. The mayor gave him a letter expressing the city's sympathy for their loss. Arzuaga is hopeful that Mayor Faiella will help the community.

He says, "The system has got to do something as far as the safety of the other kids out there, 'cause again my reason to be here is no longer with me."

Arzuaga says people speed up and down Lucero Drive. "It's straight up, and that's where a bus stop goes."

Port St. Lucie has a lot of streets like this and Arzuaga says it needs to add more sidewalks, speed bumps, stop signs and lights. He worries another child could be killed. "'Cause I know like every other parent knows and every other person who lives in here, we do need the sidewalks, we do need the lights."

The mayor invited Dyanna Gil's family to a city council meeting next week for a discussion. They hope something will be done because kids still walk this path to the school bus stop
