LAPD & Bureau of Street Services

LAPD & Bureau of Street Services Team Up!

To keep the Bureau on the cutting edge of pavement preservation, the Street Resurfacing Division performed quality control training at the LAPD Edward M. Davis Training Facility on August 3rd. Crews repaved LAPD’s training facility while learning how to operate state-of-the-art technology for profiling and paving. With machinery from Caterpillar Inc., the Bureau’s crews will now utilize new sensor technology that allows them to pave smoother streets. The Bureau is proud to invest in employee training as their refined skills will benefit Los Angeles drivers greatly.

Vision Zero Initiative Aims to Eradicate Fatalities Caused by Motor Vehicles

Vision Zero Initiative Aims to Eradicate Fatalities Caused by Motor Vehicles

Signed by Mayor Eric Garcetti on August 24, the Vision Zero Initiative aims to reduce the number of fatalities caused by motor vehicles by 20% by 2017 and to zero by the year 2025, and change the City of Los Angeles status of being the second in the nation for number of people that are killed by motor vehicles when walking. The Vision Zero Initiative has tasked both the Department of Transportation and the Los Angeles Police Department to work with appropriate city departments to achieve the goal of eradicating motor vehicle-related fatalities in the City of Los Angeles by aligning available resources toward this end. All of our neighborhood Councils should see this as an opportunity to continue engaging with City Hall to help shape related policies and help identify neighborhoods heavily impacted by traffic collisions.
