Garcetti, Bonin, Seleta Reynolds & Janette Sadik-Khan on Safer Streets

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti has released a strategic plan to turn streets into safer "21st century" public spaces for everyone, with help from LA City Councilmember Mike Bonin, new LADOT chief Seleta Jewel . . . and former NYC Janette Sadik-Khan, credited with turning Times Square into a pedestrian friendly "crossroads of the world” -- meantime expanding bus service, bringing into existence the largest bike share in the US. and 400 miles of bike lanes.

She told a crowded UCLA auditorium that “New Yorkers now talk about traffic calming. . . bike sharing . . . way-finding. There is a completely different set of transportation options and designs on the streets of New York.”

She noted that younger people today are looking for choices that include not taking on the burden of car ownership.
