LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles City Council Tuesday approved an emergency motion requesting a study on the safety along the Venice Beach Boardwalk.

The Venice Beach Public Safety Needs Assessment, requested by Councilman Mike Bonin, was approved 14-0 following a deadly crash where an Italian honeymooner was killed and 11 others were injured Saturday.

Transient Nathan Campbell, 38, had been arrested for suspicion of murder in the crash.

Tuesday’s vote also directs the city to immediately install temporary barriers at intersections along the tourist hub, which is commonly confused for a street.

Other options such as improved lighting, surveillance cameras and an emergency public address system are also being examined.
