? No point of a park without parking
How do you go to the park when there is no place to park? The curb on Verdugo Road, at least 200 to 300 feet, has been painted red.
With all the sports that are using this park, where are they to go?
They want to put gates at Brand Park, I read (“Officials offer park solutions,” Friday), as well as a guard or ranger. Do they want to keep the public out?
Most park users park on the side streets, like Los Encinos Avenue.
How about some red “no parking” area near our driveway curbs on trash pickup day or any day cars hug the driveway entrance with the building going up on the corner of Los Encinos and Verdugo Road? Parking is almost nil.
At least two vehicles haven’t moved in a week. One truck has been in the same spot at least a month. So where is there to go to the park, when there’s no place to park?
Seeking answers on traffic ticket
In the last two weeks there have been three letters in the Glendale News-Press regarding a driver being ticketed in Glendale for failing to wait until a pedestrian reached the opposite curb before driving through the crosswalk (“Traffic stop was an unfair move by police,” Mailbag, March 7; “Police are sending mixed signals on laws,” Mailbag, March 13; “Clearing up the laws governing crosswalks,” Mailbag, Saturday).
Therefore, I have written to Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams asking him to advise me of the official policy of the Glendale Police Department regarding issuing a ticket to a driver who correctly stops for a pedestrian in a crosswalk but then proceeds through the crosswalk after the pedestrian is safely beyond the center of the street but has not reached the opposite curb.
