Dead End Living

More news about cut-through traffic: Life on West Hollywood's Greenacre Avenue can be an exercise in frustration, writes Michael Poles in an op-ed in the WeHo News. The dead-end street—which runs north from Santa Monica Boulevard, about five blocks west of La Brea—is frequently seen as a cut-through to Fountain, which leads to racing cars and screeching tires when drivers abruptly reach the end of the cul de sac (two huge reflective signs warning drivers about the dead-end are often ignored). On August 12, there was an accident—one of many—and a neighborhood dog was just killed by a speeding truck. Poles calls for additional police presence, more signage, and possibly turning the once-idyllic street into a gated community. [WeHo News]
