Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar introduced a motion last week addressing standards used to determine the length of red curb designations in Los Angeles.
According to his newsletter, the Department of Transportation (DOT) utilizes a policy that often requires 20 to 30 feet of red curbs more than what the state requires, and the motion asks for a report back from DOT on how the city can better align their red curb policy with state guidelines.
When installation of bike lanes happened in late September and early October on Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock, DOT installed quite a few red curbs in the process, which caught many in the neighborhood by surprise, including Huizar's office.
What do you think of Huizar's motion? Will it reduce the red on Colorado? Tell us in the comments.
