Los Angeles police presented a plan before the L.A. Police Commission in hopes of reducing the number of fatal and serious injury traffic collisions in the city by 10 percent this year.
“I think anything is attainable,” Tyler Izen, L.A. police union president, said in an interview with Southern California Public Radio. “It might require much more than the Los Angeles Police Department. It might require every citizen out there. It might require all of us to give up our phones while we’re in the car.”
Already, about 110 officers have been asked to voluntarily move to traffic enforcement assignments at one of the department’s four bureaus across the city in an effort to help reduce those types of crashes.
“The bottom line is this: When I lose friends who are police officers or family members – when I lose them to traffic collisions – it is no less a loss than when I lose them to violence,” Izen said in an interview with Southern California Public Radio.
