Streets with many, many families and children—that don't have sidewalks—have hundreds of drivers speeding and running stop signs to make up lost time, putting our children's lives and all of us at risk. (See other Videos of this below.) It is time for our City Government to address this issue, along with our new City Councilmember.
Maybe the solution is the elimination of this "road diet" and going back to 4 lanes of traffic. Or maybe it's something in-between. This is a major artery and classified as a "Secondary Highway" by the City. Incidentally, the City has been changing classifications of streets to make it easier to reduce traffic lanes on major roads and install 900 Miles of bike lanes, per Mobility Plan 2035. Frankly, we are not against bike lanes. But we do not believe that traffic lanes on major arteries should be sacrificed for bike lanes—when the consequences result in putting ourselves & our children (on the surrounding streets) at great risk of injury or death.
Express your views and let the powers that be know the dangerous situation we currently find ourselves in is unacceptable! We've made it SUPER EASY to do...
Power in numbers is true! In addition to writing a letter, please take a moment to also sign our online petition.
Taking on the 'Road Diet' dilemma with the City of LA requires more than the time and energy many of us are donating to the cause. Money is needed for things such signage, flyers, attorneys, website hosting/maintenance, etc. Your financial support is necessary to fight this to the end—with the results we ALL desire.
If you live around Rowena Ave. and are tired of this, or if you are a commuter who uses Rowena Ave. and are tired of this, it is up to you to make your voice heard. Because we the Community—YOU—are the ones who can decide this issue!
Your help in any way is much appreciated.
