A busy intersection that's seen more than 40 pedestrians struck by a car in the past five years finally got a traffic light installed this past week.
Nineteen of those collisions at Reseda Boulevard and Dearborn Street in Northridge were hit-and-run incidents, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
L.A. City Councilman Mitch Englander helped secure funding for the traffic light in response to the number of incidents.
"The entire corridor of Reseda Boulevard, near CSUN has very heavy car, pedestrian and bicycle traffic," he said at the unveiling on Tuesday, adding: "· Traffic safety has always been a serious concern for us, LAPD, CSUN students and faculty and the surrounding community. ... My office pushed to have a signal installed at this location because we have known that it is dangerous."
Do you think this intersection was a real problem and needed traffic lights?
