Pacific Avenue At 25th Avenue Venice, CA - Venice
A Crosswalk needs to be installed and pedestrian crossing signs need to be posted at Pacific Ave. at 25th Ave.. There are existing disabled access ramps on both sides and vehicular traffic does not slow down nor stop as pedestrians or the disabled enter the street. This is a high pedestrian traffic crossing to and from the canals to the beach.
612 N Kingsley Dr Los Angeles, CA 90004, USA - Mid Wilshire
Noise Pollution issue. Unlicensed rooster in cage on patio of apartment. Rooster is less than 100 feet from any apartment in any direction which is against ordinances. Police have been called with no luck.
Will add video of what the Rooster sounds like from a location around 200 feet away with the doors and windows hut. 30 seconds of video, 2 cycles of crowing.

Ice Cream Vendor: Diana’s Ice Cream
9523 Avalon Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90003. License # 8K66972.
Truck frequently operates outside of ordinance 176830 which states:
(c) Hours of Sales. No person shall dispense any item, including food,
from an ice cream truck on a street during the following hours: From 8:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. during the months of April through October and from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. during the months of November through March.
It is November and this truck is currently on the street at 7:50pm on 12/10/10
Driver frequently forgets to stop music while parked to serve ice cream. This is also against noise ordinances. It is not uncommon to hear this truck's music through windows and walls over 1/4 of a mile away for 30 minutes straight.
Los Angeles Health Department was contacted with apparently no solution rendered.
I believe they have the right to sell their fatty sugary laden crap to the poor people of this neighborhood, but must we be abused by the aneurysm inducing music because this driver refuses to follow the law?
1049 S Westwood Blvd Los Angeles, CA - Westwood
Along this stretch between Le Conte and Lindbrook are huge potholes in southbound traffic. Bicyclists unfamiliar with the area who leave a wide berth to allow for the door zone could hit these. The rest of us swerve to avoid them, which may aggravate car drivers.
2317 Oakwood Ave Los Angeles, CA 90291, USA - Venice
Cars speed down my residential street at over 40mph everyday because it is a convenient shortcut to avoid the intersection at Venice and Lincoln Blvd.s. On the other side of Venice Blvd. Oakwood Avenue has speed bumps and stop signs, which discourages through traffic from speeding through a neighborhood filled with families with small children. I've asked the city to install a speed bump on our side of Oakwood Avenue, but it refused because my block isn't long enough to warrant one under their criteria. But a car counter and radar gun would show that there is way too much traffic for a small residential street and cars are going way too fast endangering everyone who lives here. Please put in a stop sign or at least speed bumps!
2451 Westwood Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90064 - West Los Angeles
A lot of UCLA commuters head north/south on Westwood near Pico, and with the busy traffic where Westwood turns into one lane, mall traffic, and Pico traffic, bicycling commuters need to be protected and let the world know they can be on the road. I've been honked at and swerved around numerous times in this neighborhood!
1872 Glendale Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90026 - Echo Park
Glendale is absolutely @#$% on earth; dangerous, ugly, polluted, this is literally where the 2 freeway vomits onto the people of Echo Park. For those who do not drive, adjacent Alvarado street is the only convenient connector to Northeast Los Angeles for the majority of people living in Echo Park, Silver Lake basically everywhere southwest of the 5. There was city talk of removing parts of the freeway and calming traffic but no clue where that has gone beyond ridiculous development talks.
