Council Holds Limit Increases for Two of Four Valley Roads

8:10 AM PDT on April 22, 2009

Buried at the end of the above report on the proposed speed limit increases for four Valley streets came news that the City Council "temporarily" held two of the four speed limit increases on yesterday's agenda.  Residents of Balboa and Zelzah Avenues can rest a little faster for the time being; hopefully long enough for Paul Krekorian's legislation to pass and a new process for limit increases to begin.

The rest of the report is a microcosm of what we've been talking about for months.  Residents are shocked that anyone would think raising limits on the roads they walk is a good idea, the reporters are confused as to how raising limits is going to slow down traffic and Councilman Zine even admits that the reason limits are rising is because the LAPD  hasn't enforced speeding laws in recent history.
