On Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at approximately 11:50PM. A horrific traffic accident occurred taking the lives of three young adults. This was due to two cars traveling at a high rate of speed in a residential neighborhood (Street Racing). The Four innocent victims were simply traveling to their destination, but unfortunately crossed paths with the alleged "street racers". As they were making a left turn at the intersection of Glenoaks Blvd and Andover drive (Burbank,CA). they were struck violently by one of the cars speeding. 


Although the accident investigation is still ongoing, many neighbors and city residents took the time to share their concerns and complaints about the long history of illegal street racing in the area. Most say that this has been an issue in the community for more than a decade. Long time residents are dissatisfied in the lack of results from their complaints. There has been countless incidents over the years but nothing to this magnitude. 

Unfortunately the lives of Cerain Baker (21), Jaiden Johnson (20) and Natalee Mohgaddam (19) were tragically cut short due to the city not taking appropriate measures on the issue. We demand the city takes responsibility, and criminal charges are filed for all alleged "Street Racers" involved.  

 

I am proposing:

1) Increasing police presence/patrols in the area in the late evening (9pm-3am).

2) Red light cameras and unmanned vehicles with radars/cameras inside.

3) Speed limit signs that flash when you are over the speed limit.

4) Speed bumps, and other speeding deterrents

5) Traffic lights need to alternate signals more often between (9pm-3am

This needs to be done now. No one else should feel this pain that we are going through.
