Here's Monday night's crash image...slow down people!
Here's Monday night's crash image...slow down people!
Just this week there were TWO serious accidents in the Laurel Canyon & Sunshine Terrace intersection, both caused by people running yellow/red lights heading North and South. Cars ended up on sidewalks, in yards, others were completely spun around into oncoming traffic, and children were involved but thankfully not hurt too badly. Had any pedestrians been on their way to the park, they would surely have died.   I live nearby, and hear the horns and several near misses every week...I'm tired of it.  I've called the city numerous times to ask for a longer delay on the traffic lights, to no avail; perhaps we can all call our councilpeople about it?  Meanwhile, please spread the word to pause and LOOK before you go into this dangerous intersection, it might save your life.  And if you're the one running the lights, then slow down....wherever you're headed can wait, but you can't turn back the clock if you kill someone.

Absolutely! !!!! The Valley has become rampant with reckless drivers!!!!! Glendale tops the list! I'm so tired of the tailgating , illegal turns and passing. Driving is a privilege not a right.

To those of you who text, talk and are not fully watching the road please stop--I have been close to several accidents because of this and others have not been so fortunate.

Regrettably, nothing will change until there is a fatality or two…or three. It is ever thus. Different municipality, same issue: It took two deaths, a few months apart, at the intersection of Fountain and North Harper Avenues in West Hollywood 12 or 13 years ago for the somnolent City Council to actually DO something. Sad.

Bah...you clearly don't know me, George, lol. I've called it into DOT, now I'll enlist our councilman Paul Krekorian. You can call him at (818) 755-7676, and his Twitter is @PaulKrekorian, I'm sending him this article. Thanks for your helpful input everyone! (Oh, Sheri, Silver Triangle is the area between Whitsett and Laurel Cyn / Ventura and Laurel Terrace. )
