Fixing the Streets Takes Big Ideas, but Let's Start Small

Given that city council spent the whole day today talking about how to improve transportation in Los Angeles, it would seem that the subject is a bit important. Lots of big picture ideas were discussed during the marathon session, but I'd like to offer the same starting suggestion that I've offered before: don't leave your things sitting in the street.

These barricades were in place Monday morning for the 'Bringing Back Broadway' event, but were still sitting in the street hours after the festivities had ended. Perhaps the city and newly named Trustees were just preparing drivers for the idea of a street with less lanes.
