From the Glendale News-Press:

DOWNTOWN — The number of pedestrian-involved vehicle collisions are up this year despite myriad outreach efforts, according to the latest Police Department figures.

There were 89 traffic accidents involving pedestrians through November, up from 74 compared to the same period last year, according to the Police Department.

The increase came despite a number of highly publicized pedestrian safety workshops and campaigns that were initiated in response to Glendale’s abysmal pedestrian safety rating.

Developing story here.
