    Mikie Friedman Calls for Sidewalk Safety in West Hollywood

    During the Public Comments portion of Monday night’s West Hollywood City Council Meeting, WeHo resident and former West Hollywood Disabilities Advisory Board member, Myra Mikie Friedman railed against the City Council for not doing enough to sidewalks safer against scooters.

    ===

    Summers is coming, and once again, more scooters will be putting pedestrians in danger. What have you done to mitigate the danger? What’s Lime doing? Sure, the sheriff’s wrote two measly scooter citations for blowing past stop signs. Sorry, but that’s not enough. Now on Wednesday, they’re having a safety instruction exercise for pedestrians, drivers and bicyclists, but did they even mentioned scooter safety instructions?

    Nobody sees your faded sidewalk stencils. So what have you done to make West Hollywood sidewalk safer? Safety should be your number one priority, but it doesn’t seem to be.

    I suggested a couple of months ago that you put up signage at eye level saying that riding on the sidewalk is illegal, and that riders would be fined, but you didn’t.

    I see ideologues acting like evangelicals and that’s dangerous. Ideologues are theorists who theories are not based on practicality, and evangelicals think it’s their mission to teach their version of the Bible. Those who don’t like them, or think like them, are enemies. Put these two philosophies together and you have the majority of our city council. You propose theories for our city, but you have no practical experience. Yet you dictate these theories to your staff, and they try to execute them because they are very well paid, and they don’t want to lose their jobs. Hell of a way to run a city.

    Adding to scooters, taking money from unions and developers, changing gender classification, parents trips, plant based menus, bike lanes taking away our parking, grossly over budget vanity projects, and small business owners forced to leave. It’s sad, but this is what you ideologues want. Stop playing games and showing your unhelpful agenda shoving your unhelpful agendas down our throats. Just listen and learn how to make our city safer. More resident and business friendly world. Thank you.

    Hi, everyone and West Hollywood is an adult. Everyone’s going to the bars and clubs. We do not need to babysit adults if they see a scooter coming be alert be aware or get out of the way that’s all people to get drunk, get high and get laid. If this guy doesn’t like it, he can just stay home and not have to deal with scooters.!
