Effort To Move Transients Causes Delays On 101 Freeway

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Traffic was backed up on the southbound 101 Freeway Wednesday morning while authorities forced several transients to move from an encampment in the Cahuenga Pass.

The enforcement effort began about 7:20 a.m. near the Highland Avenue off-ramp, which was partially closed, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos.

One lane of the two-lane exit was closed during the enforcement effort, which caused significant delays.

    Finally, the city is doing something about these homeless encampments. They are crime magnets.

    When the city cleaned out the encampments in the L.A. River bed near downtown, property crimes and muggings dropped significantly in the area.
