The city of Glendale has a very negative reputation for traffic problems, both for vehicles and pedestrians. Motorists do not upon entering the city become irresponsible. They are simply complying with the city's position that everything must be done to not impede the flow of traffic. So, when we read about hit and runs, traffic accidents, failed stops and speeding in Glendale, we now know the answer. Motorists “hit” can “run” because if they stopped, they would be impeding the flow of traffic.

GLENDALE — More than three weeks after a new law that banned texting while driving became effective, local law enforcement agencies have been finding it difficult to catch motorists in the act. The texting ban took effect Jan. 1 and forbids drivers from writing, sending or reading text messages and e-mails on electronic wireless communication devices, such as cell phones and laptop computers, while driving. First-time violators will receive a fine of at least $20 for texting while driving, and subsequent violations will be at least $50. But the presence of a police officer often deters motorists from texting and presents a challenge in citing offenders, officers said.
