A bet­ter route

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “Blow­back over road di­ets,” Ed­i­to­rial, July 30

The Times fails its read­ers with its sopho­moric char­ac­ter­i­za­tion and re­duc­tive un­der­stand­ing of the is­sue and the peo­ple af­fected.

We are not “self­ish.” We are con­cerned res­i­dents who want safety and hon­est rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

We want emer­gency per­son­nel to move quickly, not be stuck in traf­fic. We want to turn right with­out hit­ting cy­clists. We want lo­cal busi­nesses to flour­ish, not lose money. We want [L.A. City Coun­cil­man Mike] Bonin to un­der­stand that sur­veys from a small per­cent of Mar Vista’s res­i­dents do not equal “ex­ten­sive out­reach” or “clam­or­ing” for this change.

We want safe streets, not dan­ger­ously de­signed, clogged ones. Cather­ine Melody Mar Vista
