School traffic safety issues have been brought to the forefront with recent accidents involving children and vehicles at school drop-off points. A few weeks ago a third grader was struck when he exited his vehicle into oncoming traffic at Palm Crest Elementary School. He escaped the incident with minor injuries. A child at Toll Middle School in nearby Glendale was not so fortunate when she was struck and killed in front of her classmates and teachers while in the crosswalk in front of her school.

Burglary incidents in La Cañada Flintridge declined for the second straight month in July, with the four burglaries reported in July representing the lowest monthly count of 2012. Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station Capt. David Silversparre told the La Cañada Flintridge City Council on Tuesday that part of the reason for the drop from 19 burglaries in May to seven in June, and then four last month, is that residents are calling in with information that allows deputies to catch suspects in the act. On July 24, a resident alerted deputies that a car full of suspicious-looking men was parked near Commonwealth and Berkshire avenues, leading deputies to interview the people in the car and later arrest a man, Sergio Hernandez, 22, of Los Angeles, who was hiding in the bushes.

Anyone in La Cañada who thinks the community has escaped the infamous Los Angeles traffic problems have obviously not been on the roads this first week of September, from 7:30-8:15 a.m. Foothill Boulevard east of Crown Avenue, Oak Grove Drive, Palm Drive, Gould Avenue and Knight Way have traffic lines that can rival any downtown commute. But instead of racing to work, these commuters are heading first to their children?s? school campuses. On Tuesday, after a sweltering 109 degree Labor Day holiday, parents filled their cars with backpacks and children and made their way to the crowded school drop-off areas.

Two months after the city added parking restrictions near La Cañada Elementary School, on Monday Joseph Mitchell convinced the City Council to revisit the issue. Mitchell, a Fairview Drive resident, is seeking stronger restrictions and told the council that the intersection of Fairview and Angeles Crest Highway is too dangerous to ignore. “I must say that you and the Planning Commission all have made mistakes already regarding this matter,” Mitchell said. “This is a matter of public safety, of many cars coming in at all hours … there should be no parking day or night in that area.” Mitchell first approached the city with his concerns in April.

The Jessen Drive Bridge isn't necessarily a bridge too far. But it is a bridge too old, at least as far as the city is concerned. It's been planning its replacement for at least a decade. And now those plans are coming to fruition. The two-lane wood-and-steel trestle bridge, built over Earle Canyon in the 1930s, serves as the main route for the parents and students who reside west of Palm Drive to reach Palm Crest Elementary. It is tentatively scheduled to be demolished in early April, according to city engineer Ying Kwan.
