    Sorry to hear this…horrible for the family especially on Christmas…but they really need to change this part of LA…letting people just step out and cross the street assuming that everyone is going to see you…and stop! It’s no wonder that there aren’t 100 a day killed in this town with this ridiculous traffic rule.
