Echo Park group holding meeting in response to Temple Street accident

You may remember a traffic accident on September 27, 2011 at around 8:00 am in Echo Park, that left three girls ages five, ten and six injured. According to The Eastsider LA at that time, the accident was cause because the driver was blinded by the sun.

If you’ve ever driven down this area – Temple Street and Laveta Terrace – you’ll know that 1) people drive that road like it’s a freeway, and 2) that sun can, indeed, be a problem, depending on the time of day. Well folks, time to slow it down!

Since this is not the first pedestrian accident along that stretch of Temple, improving pedestrian and traffic safety has been a priority for many community members, and especially the Patton Allianza Coalition, which has in the past asked for improved safety on that same stretch. Thankfully in this case, the girls who were injured were okay (according to Echo Park Patch).

Which is why you should join the Coalition and other neighbors for a Community Safety Meeting on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 6:30 pm, at the Betty Plasencia Elementary School. Help neighborhood organizations and city representatives identify problem spots and work through how to solve them, making our neighborhood and its corridors a safer place. Perhaps the LAPD will monitor speeding with a motorcycle cop to help slow things down?

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my option to learn, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix if you happen to werent too busy looking for attention.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself
    or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do
    you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.
