I live in Tujunga and attend Glendale Community College. I take either the streets or the highway to and from campus. I’m astonished by the intense sense of urgency demonstrated among motorists.
Usually I park in the parking structure east of the campus, because it’s convenient and it feels safe.
I have since had a change of heart.
The parking structure is like something out of the movie “The Fast and the Furious.” It’s a speedway! I park in spaces that are less vulnerable to being in an accident, and I’m constantly looking back making sure to get out the way.
There seems to be minimal regard for the pedestrians and other vehicles that also enjoy the comfort of the parking structure. I’m not at all suggesting that the person responsible for the fatal hit-and-run could be a resident of Glendale. I’m merely arguing that there is some room for improvement — mainly on the shoulders of the motorists who have a problem respecting the speed limits both in and around Glendale.
