Memorial Sign Unveiling for Monique Muñoz

Memorial Sign Unveiling for Monique Muñoz

On Monday LADOT and Councilwoman Katy Yaroslavsky joined with family and friends to unveil a memorial sign in remembrance of Monique Munoz whose life was taken by a dangerous act of speeding on our streets and to serve as a reminder to Los Angeles of the dangers of speeding. Monique's family requested the sign be placed as a permanent memorial to her life and as a reminder to drivers to slow down and drive responsibly.

Following the fatal crash LADOT, installed protected turn arrows at the intersection and lowered speed limits from 40 mph to 35 mph. While these treatments can improve safety, it is imperative that drivers act responsibly. The driver that killed Monique was traveling at an estimated 106 mph at the time of the collision.

Each of us has the power and responsibility to prevent these kinds of tragedies through safe driving behavior so that no more families are forced to endure the loss of a loved one.

LA Storm Clean Up

Following the latest storm activity last week, LADOT would like to thank the efforts of many LADOT Traffic Officers, Traffic Engineers, and signal crew members who worked through the storm to keep our city moving. We would also like to thank our partners at StreetsLA who assisted in clearing roads affected by mudslides such as Mulholland Drive in Beverly Crest. More winter weather is expected this week so we ask all Angelenos to continue practicing safe driving behavior at all times and taking extra care when roads are potentially wet or flooded.

Updated Slow Streets Treatments Make Their Way To Sawtelle

Newly updated slow streets treatments are now installed in the Sawtelle neighborhood. This is all a part of Phase 2 of our Slow streets program update. Recently our crews added brand new signs along various neighborhood streets in Sawtelle. They are comprised of sturdier and more durable design treatments such as traffic circles, centerline gateways, and signage to calm traffic within neighborhoods.

The Slow Streets L.A. program was initially launched as a COVID-19 pandemic response program to temporarily calm traffic on residential streets. The goal was to create space for neighbors to remain physically active while socially distant, in response to the closure of parks, gyms, trails, and other venues for recreation and exercise during the pandemic. Due to the popularity of the program, we are transitioning existing slow streets networks to a more long-term program that incorporates best practices learned from the L.A. Slow Streets program.

LADOT Now Hiring Crossing Guards

LADOT is now accepting applications for new Crossing Guards. Crossing guards keep students safe traveling to and from school and help educate and instill safe, alert walking behaviors in young Angelenos. Our crossing guards are placed at schools throughout the city and help provide experience and judgment to help children navigate a school crossing, while also increasing the visibility of their presence to drivers.

If you are interested in applying for a crossing guard position you can visit the website for the application and instructions on how to apply.

Celebrating Women's History Month: Arcola Philpott LA's first African American Motorwoman

In honor of Women's History Month and International Women's Day, we want to highlight women in transportation history. In 1944, Arcola Philpott became the first African American hired by the Los Angeles railway. Philpott operated the “F” line from 116th & South Vermont Avenue to Union Station. She was originally from Chicago, where she graduated from Loyola University with a degree in social science. She was also an accomplished pianist and spoke several languages. Today Metro’s bus and rail operator workforce includes 33.9 percent women,  20.7 percent African American men, and 22.9 percent African American women.
