Councilman Garcetti has apparently kept his promise to curb the shortcutting through Silverlake neighborhoods that has driven residents absolutely batty. Blogging.la has an eyewitness account.
Today my favorite shortcut disappeared. I got off the 2 South at Glendale Blvd where I usually proceed through the intersection onto Waterloo then to Duane where I turn left at the dog park onto Silverlake Blvd. I know, the locals complained about the traffic so I should have seen this coming. The shortcut hasn't even been there that long, it wasn't really a viable option until the light at the corner of Duane and Silverlake Blvd. made it possible to do a left onto Silverlake. I'm sure that Eric Garcetti had something to do with this.
Garcetti's so far been successful at cutting down on graffitti and cut-throughs. Now let's see if he can stop our malicious littering.
