NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A proposed traffic signal at North Kenwood Street at Wilson Avenue will temper the pedestrian dangers for students at nearby Allan F. Daily High School, officials said. City engineers have been monitoring the intersection for the last two years, as the conflict between vehicular and pedestrian traffic there has become a significant concern, according to staff reports. Daily High School sits on the 200 block of North Kenwood Street on the northeast corner of the intersection with Wilson, creating a spike in foot traffic as students arrive to and leave the campus.

LA CRESCENTA ? Karen Tyler is getting sick and tired of having to "play chicken" with speeding traffic every time she takes her children through a crosswalk near Mountain Avenue Elementary School. In the past 10 days, Tyler, a mother of two children who attend the school, has had two "near-misses" and has joined the growing ranks of disgruntled parents and residents who want the county of Los Angeles to look into reducing the volume and speed of traffic at the intersection of Briggs Avenue and Mountain Avenue during school rush hours.

Whatever the Glendale Police Department can do, including use of cameras at intersections, to catch traffic laws violators is OK with me ("City Council to consider traffic cameras," Friday). I've lived and worked in Glendale since the 1960s. Being a driver and pedestrian in this city is becoming dangerous. There's too much speed, too little respect for traffic laws; too many drivers showing off their fancy, expensive vehicles; too many "Type A" personality drivers with too little patience and courtesy; too many drivers glued to their cellphones while running red lights, stop signs and occupied crosswalks.

Thursday to execute a sting operation that would not only ticket traffic-law violators, but would also reward traffic-law obeyers.
