Eyes on the Street: Cars Running the Red at Venice and Robertson

4:29 PM PST on February 9, 2015

Expo super-fan Gökhan Esirgen sends along the above video of cars running the red light at the newly-reconstructed intersection of Venice Blvd. and Robertson Blvd. Esirgen writes, "Note that this is not a seldom event -- it happens for about five seconds in almost every cycle during rush hour and it's typical of this intersection now. A pedestrian who looks at the signal but not the cars would be hit."

Streetsblog editorial board member Jonathan Weiss forwarded the message to staff at LADOT. Before the afternoon was out, Jay Greenstein with Councilmember Paul Koretz's office responded that engineers with LADOT are re-examining the intersection and LAPD's enforcement division was notified.

We'll keep an eye of our own on the intersection to see if there are any new, more positive, changes in the coming weeks and months.
