    I blame whoever programs the traffic signals, and over-rides the sensor’s we taxpayers paid for. There’s no excuse for being the only one waiting for a red light when there’s no cross traffic, and the sensors don’t work.

      We are trying to identify the responsible agencies. There is much overlap and finger pointing.

    Well it seems to me the Mayor sets the tone and the direction. His Executive Order “Vision Zero” clearly states his intention to slow down the speed of traffic on the city streets in order to ELIMINATE all traffic deaths. So could it be possible that people will die in ambulances while stuck in traffic and waiting for a signal to change? Meanwhile FAST.ORG is pushing a Rand Corporation Study proposing ways to speed up traffic flow so people can get to work on time and be more productive. My guess is that there is very poor communication between the Mayor and the Rand Corporation and some knowledgeable observers are estimating that none of the proposals that are already funded to the tune of Billions of tax dollars, will come to fruition before this century is half over. That is why Full Disclosure is looking into the issue of traffic gridlock disaster, as it appears to be a desired result of all the term limited politicians proposals and plans. We have invited L A Times investigative reporter David Zahniser to come tell us of his research on L A Community Plans and what impact all the new developments are having on traffic in the city. Hope he will accept our invitation to shed more light this.
