A traffic light is needed at the intersection of 16th and Ocean Park Boulevard in Santa Monica.

As the City of Santa Monica looks to make its streets more pedestrian and bike friendly, nothing is more important than road safety near our schools. 

During morning and afternoon rush hour 16th and OPB is a complex maze of competing interests: commuters speeding to Venice and Playa, neighborhood students crossing to John Adams and Will Rogers, and locals parking for local merchants.

Without a signal, the combination of left turns, pedestrian traffic and speeding commuters has resulted in numerous crashes over the last year putting students at risk. 

We request that the City Council pursue an evaluation of traffic calming methods and establish a traffic light to make the intersection safe for everyone, especially students.
