BRENTWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Officials have posted banners in four locations along Sunset Boulevard in an effort to reduce reckless and distracted driving.
The Safety on Sunset campaign was launched by City Councilman Bill Rosendahl and funded by the family of Julia Siegler, who was killed crossing Sunset in 2010.
Each banner displays one of four images designed to express the emotional impact caused by a traffic collision as well as the words: “Safety on Sunset” and “Is it worth it?”
The banners aim to curb speeding, texting while driving and remind motorists to watch the road.
A long-time resident told KNX1070 people drive over 50 mph in the 35 mph zone.
