Figures Differ for Venice Blvd; Recall Bonin Group to Go After Venice Blvd, Vision Zero, and Mobility 2035 Streets

figures

Recall Bonin campaign says Bonin’s figures for Venice Blvd are not quite correct. Based on fewer cars going between Beethoven and Inglewood — 31,000 as opposed to 37,000 per day (LADOT figures) that “rate of collisions” are up 7 percent.

Alexis Edelstein, co-chair of Recall Bonin, says “Venice Boulevard is more dangerous now than it was before Councilmember Bonin implemented Mar Vista’s Great Streets program–and that’s according to the LADOT’s own numbers.

“The only reason injury collisions are down as a number is because the number of cars going thru Venice Blvd went from 37,000 a day to 31,000 a day according to LADOT’s own numbers. Per 100,000 cars, the rate of injury accidents went from 2.7 per month to 2.9 per month. That’s an increase of 7.4%.”

Note: The time periods for calculation seem to be different.

Now that Playa del Rey “Safe Streets” program is resolved, the Recall Bonin campaign is going after Venice Blvd and the other streets earmarked in CD11 for Vision Zero and Mobility Plan 2035 lane reductions.
