Death Trap Update
Updated: Apr 23, 2022
After a recent article on Silver Lake “death traps,” Silver Lake Together received a resounding number of emails asking that a protected turn signal be installed at the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Riverside Drive. One area resident reported that her daughter was severely injured when traveling north on Riverside Drive and was hit by another driver, attempting to go east on Glendale Boulevard. Her daughter suffered 16 broken bones and is disabled for life.
SLT will continue to work closely with LAPD and CD 13 to find a solution for this dangerous intersection.
