  1. There’s a guy who drives around on the sidewalks at the Studio City/Universal Red Line station… I tried calling the police and actually went to the police station with a video of this (a metro employee on site told me this guy does this all the time) as he sped off, driving off the sidewalk using the pedestrian ramp and straight into the only remaining crosswalk at the intersection with many pedestrians around in the middle of the day. The police had zero interest in even SEEING the video even though there’s pedestrians all over and he does this regularly.

    After reading about the MacArthur park driver, I see why. Some days I have zero hope for this city getting it together.

  2. Multiple stories about the MacArthur Park crash quote witnesses talking about how “nice” the driver is. How are people so ready to defend reckless drivers?
