Karla Mendelson, Directory of KeepLAMoving, and Deborah Murphy founder of LA Walks debated "Road Diets' on KCRW's Press Play with Madeleine Brand. Karla pointed out the flaws in the "Vision Zero" talking points and how cherry picked data isn't telling the true story.
A mostly factual story in the Argonaut about the Westcheter/PdR Neighborhood Council Meeting and vote to send a clear message to Bonin, "Road Diets" are not welcome in PdR!
John Russo and Katie Clark were on Larry Mantle's show Fresh Air to present a point/counter point discussion on the PdR road diets and Mike Bonin's decision to restore Vista Del Mar to 4 lanes.
Tonight Mike Bonin announced that Vista Del Mar will be restored to 4 lanes, and a task force will be formed of PDR residents and LADOT personnel to figure a solution for Pershing, Culver and Jefferson that work for all users of the roads.
Show up and wear orange. Look for us at a table. We will be handing out flyers and asking for your help in ending this road diet madness. If you want to help at the event, contact us.
Mike Bonin finally came out of hiding at the Mar Vista Community Council Meeting. He appeared before several non-profit vision zero advocates brought in from outside of Bonin's district. This was an eye opener for the room, who were mostly against the road diets. It was clear we are going to have to have to speak up; we will not win being the silent majority!
Yesterday was a busy day in our little beach town. Mike Bonin announced that LADOT would be returning a lane to us on the eastbound section of Culver Blvd. between Nicholson and Jefferson. This is the start of somethng and we are happy that our voices have begun to be hear. However, those of us that leave, must also return. John Russo responded to the announcement on the Channel 11 News yesterday at 10:00.
