Letter: Going on the record against lawbreakers

In all of the following instances, I am a pedestrian in La Crescenta:

8 a.m.: Foothill and Lauderdale intersection, a person I know did not slow or look before approaching the light to make a right turn. Lucky for the kids and me, we were 10 feet away.

2:20 p.m.: Foothill and Lauderdale intersection, I was almost mowed down by a Caltrans worker. The driver sped through the intersection in his orange pickup so fast I couldn't get a number off the vehicle. He blew through the red light while looking down at his lap. I called Caltrans to report him, hoping Teletrac is used. No luck. I counted my blessings and continued on to pick up my kids from school.

2:20 to 2:40 p.m.: Los Olivos and Lauderdale intersection, cars do not come to a full and complete stop. I use caution when crossing. People park in red zones to load/unload kids, both morning and afternoon daily. The Glendale Police Department has been notified.

2:45 p.m. Foothill/Lauderdale intersection, a woman in a sedan I made eye contact with did not yield to my kids and me while we were crossing. We waited in the middle of the street while she completed her left turn.

Beware, lawbreakers. I am on high alert now. You come anywhere near my kids or me, you will be reported to the Glendale Police Department. I will record you breaking the law.
