After one fatality and numerous car crashes at the intersection of Cooper Avenue and 61st Street in Glendale, Councilman Robert Holden and residents are calling on the Department of Transportation (DOT) to “fix this situation immediately.”

The stop sign on the southwest corner of Cooper Avenue is obstructed by trees and parked cars, causing low visibility which creates a dangerous situation for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Holden wrote a heated letter to the DOT last week, saying that he is “appalled that DOT would leave the intersection in this condition.”
