City Issue: Should Cars be Banned on Broadway in Downtown LA?

Published

on

LOS ANGELES (Los Angeles Times)– Councilman Jose Huizar has asked the city to study a ban on private cars along Broadway between 1st and 12th streets in downtown L.A.

Banning cars from downtown streets is beginning to catch on in major U.S. cities, with New York and San Francisco moving to free up space for transit vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. But the trend hasn’t come to Los Angeles — yet.

A proposal introduced by Los Angeles Councilman Jose Huizar could change that. The councilman asked city officials last week to study the feasibility of a ban on driving and parking along a 1.5-mile stretch of Broadway between 1st and 12th streets.

Broadway is “an ideal street to go car-free,” Huizar said, because narrower roadways and expanded space for pedestrians have already begun to transform the iconic corridor. […]

Checkpoints have been announced at the following locations and times for heavy enforcement during Academy Awards weekend and parties. In addition, the Los Angeles Police Department has announced a DUI Saturation Patrol in the LAPD Central area Thursday, February 6, 2020, 5 P.M. to Friday, February 7, 2019, 2 A.M.

Checkpoints will be held:

WEST HOLLYWOOD: Friday, February 7 between the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Services Detail will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint at an undisclosed location within the city limits

SHERMAN OAKS: Saturday, February 8, 2020, 8 P.M. to Sunday, February 9, 2019, 1 A.M., Ventura Boulevard at Columbus Avenue

Such DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Deputies will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with deputies checking drivers for proper licensing.

Law enforcement agencies wish to remind drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI.

Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.
 
In 2017, 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads. Last year the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigated 395 DUI collisions which have claimed 21 lives and resulted in another 590 injuries.
 
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department offers these reminders to ensure you have a safe night of fun that doesn’t involve a DUI:

  •  Always use a designated sober driver – a friend who is not drinking, ride-share, cab or public transportation – to get home.
  • See someone who is clearly impaired try and drive? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to find a sober way home
  • Report drunk drivers – Call 911.
  • Hosting a party? Offer nonalcoholic drinks. Monitor who are drinking and how they are getting home.

Getting home safely is cheap, but getting a DUI is not! Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.
