Add Your “Most Dangerous Intersection”

Wilshire-LaBrea - 1 (1)

Everyone pedestrian or biker has one – the intersection you always try to avoid because when you don’t, you risk death or injury by entering or crossing.  If you’d like to alert the city to your “favorite” deadly intersection, in hopes of gaining safety improvements at those spots, radio station KPCC has created an interactive map that allows users to flag problem intersections in their neighborhoods. Among those already identified in our area: 3rd and Cochran, Wilshire and La Brea, 3rd and La Brea, 4th and Highland, 4th and Rossmore, and Norton and Ingraham.  Agree? Disagree?  Visit the map and plot your points of terror to help make our city safer.

  1. I know it’s not “most deadly,” but in the fifteen years I’ve lived on Orange Drive, the intersection at 6th and Orange has seen so many accidents I couldn’t count them. There’s no light, no stop sign and just a throughway from people skirting Wilshire traffic, as well as those racing to La Brea from Highland.

  2. The corner of Rosewood and Orange Drive is close to a large shul and always crowded with parked cars, delivery trucks that and lots of people walking and crossing at the corner and mid-block. It’s very difficult for the people driving on Orange Drive, who don’t have the right of way, to cross safely. I’ve seen many near misses there… and I had one myself about six months ago due to the limited visibility. The corner really deserves a four-way stop.
