City of Glendale CA Considers Hosting “Ciclavia” to Raise Awareness of Bike and Pedestrian Safety

Brand Boulevard is expected to be closed off to cars sometime in September to encourage bike and pedestrian safety and to hopefully entice CicLAvia , a one-day event that shuts down major arteries in Los Angeles to make way for bicyclists, to come to Glendale.

The City of Glendale CA has had a rash of recent incidents involving pedestrian and bike accidents.  The city has numerous crosswalks and other infrastructure encouraging pedestrian use of its streets but, as an attorney representing injured pedestrians and cyclists in Glendale CA, I’m glad to see that they may also try some new ways to raise safety awareness and reduce the number of accidents.
