A new organization calling themselves "West LA for Change" debuted itself to thousands of drivers on the 405 by unrolling a 100 foot sign calling for a speeded up time table for the Subway to the Sea and Phase II of the Expo Line. The group doesn’t seem to limit itself to transportation advocacy, as their website promotes the group as:
a non-partisan coalition of West LA residents committed to building and maintaining a sustainable, healthy, just and prosperous community.
While they don’t seem to have any more highway protests planned, there is a link to join their mailing list if you’re interested in wearing a mask and pushing a message of alternative transportation. To see the second side of their sign, promoting bikes as an alternative to those cars crossing the overpass, read on after the jump.
