Amber Willard NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Two women were in area hospitals Tuesday with severe injuries after being struck by cars as they were walking in crosswalks that morning. The incidents, which were not related, were the second and third involving pedestrians to occur in less than a week in the city. The first incident occurred Nov. 7. That victim, Philip Bernier, was still in critical condition Tuesday. In each of the three cases, the drivers said they did not see the victims, although all were in crosswalks at the time of the accident, Glendale Police said.

A driver pulls up to an intersection to make a right turn. He is stopped by a crowd of pedestrians crossing legally in front of him. Rather than waiting until the light turns in his favor, the driver begins to lay on his horn, angrily gesturing for the pedestrians to get out his way. When they don't, he steps on the gas, forcing walkers -- men, women and children -- to jump for safety. The driver roars off, still gesturing angrily at his delay. Welcome to Glendale.

Somebody, anybody, please tell me how increasing the speed limits on many of the city streets is going to help tickets "stand up" in court? I presume that one of the streets for an increase will be Pacific Avenue. I drive on Pacific an average of four times daily, which is nearly all in the 25 mph speed zone. I drive close to 35 mph when possible, and it seems that most of the time the high-powered SUVs and sports car enthusiasts blow past me like I am standing still.

For everybody spending frequent time along Brand Boulevard between the Foothill (134) Freeway and Colorado Boulevard, it is obvious that there is a danger driving or walking there. Everybody is certainly at risk because of the congestion, design of crosswalks and closeness of lights, which encourages quick acceleration and braking. And there are many, many distractions with shops and activity on the sidewalk, etc. My opinion is that Glendale must implement immediate measures to reduce risks for everybody there.

Comes as no surprise that Glendale ranks lowest in senior pedestrian safety ("City gets another poor pedestrian safety score," Jan. 8). I know — in addition to being a driver, since moving to Glendale, I have increased walking to my appointments and errands. (It really is great not to have to hassle with parking spaces and complex meters!) So I have a couple of suggestions for both pedestrians and drivers, based on personal experiences. Pedestrians: Please cross at crosswalks.

Two major construction projects along Foothill Boulevard will change the look and function of the city's major thoroughfare in 2006, city officials said Friday. The City Council will vote on an agreement today that would allow the city to be reimbursed by Caltrans for major reconstruction work on Foothill between Cypress Drive and La Canada Boulevard. That work will include resurfacing Foothill with an asphalt-rubber mix, replacement of concrete curbs and gutters, installation of median islands with landscaping and irrigation, and in-pavement lighted crosswalks at three locations.
