Yo Venice reports that Abbott Kinney will get one of those flashing strip lights--LEDs are embedded in the road--today. It's not clear what part of the boulevard is getting the system, but an excerpt from a press release from Councilmember Bill Rosendahl's office. Sounds like he's a being billed as a cross walk superhero: "Residents along with community activist, Betsy Goldman, noticed the unsafe conditions for pedestrians crossing the section of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and brought the issue to Rosendahl’s attention. Rosendahl ensured the activation of the safety system several weeks ago so pedestrian safety would not be compromised." [Yo Venice]
