Victory and Columbus: Unlit


Gilmore and Columbus: Lit.

The corner of Columbus and Victory, on the north side of Victory, is one which has a constant stream of both traffic and pedestrians. But at night, the unlit intersection is a dangerous place, where cars turning north onto Columbus often narrowly miss nighttime bicyclists and people walking in the dark.

A few years ago, I contacted the City of LA about this, and was told, ridiculously, that a petition would need to be signed by area residents to request a street lamp at the busy corner. Yet, just north on Columbus, at Gilmore, Roya, Hamlin, Haynes, Kittridge and Vanowen, all are magically illuminated.

Many people walk at night in this area. And to keep them in the dark is to invite death or injury.
