Word to the Wise

In the wake of the LAPD’s Northeast Gang sweep, Highland Park has become saturated with traffic stops.  One friend of the site has been pulled over three times in a 24 hour period for a broken tail light.  (Twice on the same trip within the neighborhood.)  Word is that the enforcement will continue through the weekend, so it might be especially wise to call a taxi or use a designated driver.

While I’m pleased to see an increased police presence in the neighborhood, witnessing three traffic stops over a six block stretch of Figueroa seems extreme.  Too much of a good thing aside, enjoy the attention while you can because with the city council’s budget cuts, the LAPD has stopped hiring new officers and isn’t replacing retirees.
