Speaking of driving slowly down the hill, Culver City Traffic Engineering Director Gabe Garcia has put together recommendations for improving traffic conditions on the Crest. These include speed and hazard awareness prompts, permanent alternative side of the street parking, and other aids and deterrents to drivers who continue to abuse the traffic laws.
Over the holidays, there were several vehicular accidents on the Crest. At Tellefson and Bernardo, a car jumped the curb and took out 4 feet of a driveway wall between two properties. The car sped away without capture. At Flaxton and Drakewood, a car sped down the hill failing to stop and collided with another vehicle. Fortunately, there were no injuries caused by these mishaps. Hope we stay this lucky!
Please, let’s all be more respectful of our neighborhood. It’s not just the employees at Marycrest Manor, as those who were ticketed by the CCPD at the corner of Ranch and Tellefson recently will attest. It’s not that big and imposition to slow down and stop at the stop signs.
