The audible noise levels on Beverly Glen Blvd (in dB decibels) exceed the published noise regulation levels for the state of california. The walls you see along the freeways are not for decoration; they protect homeowners from the un-heathy documented effects of noise levels above the regulated levels.

I’ve been to the meetings where government talking heads converse with politically motivated folks in the canyon and self congratulate themselves on getting really very little done for the last 12 years. Aren’t they wonderful:-)) The crashes seem more frequent and the noise levels appear to be going up–in decibels.

I believe the citizens of the canyon need to take a legal approach to solving our traffic problem by addressing the needed state mitigations to bring the noise level on their canyon streets running through our neighborhood into conformance with their published noise codes and laws. Traffic restraining order anyone??

James, I’m in complete agreement with you, enough is enough.

It’s great to see there was ANOTHER meeting on this topic but this conversation has been going on for 30+ years now. Glen residents holding radar guns doing the police’s job is not the answer to this problem and is quite frankly is too dangerous for even the police to do.

The reality is that there really is probably very little we can do to stop the traffic problems we are having on The Glen and the situation will continue to snowball as time goes on. Yes I know I can suck it up and move but complaining about the problem is much easier to do.

We just spent over 1 billion dollars to open up a carpool lane on the 405 which has done little to nothing to alleviate traffic on the 405.

My wife and I literally risk our lives walking our dog on the street. If you park on the street, it’s only a matter of time before your car will get hit or side-swiped.

The “common sense” items listed below may help but we all know that they will never been implemented:
1. Install enough speed bumps to make the locals think twice before leaving their homes.
2. Make the Glen a private toll road / gated community
3. Highly visible “warning” signs along with Photo radar / laser enforcement. 10mph over the limit will result in a very expensive ticket.
4. pursue legal action as James outlined above.

I live on the other side of the hill, in Sherman Oaks where Beverly Glen joins Valley Vista. We are experiencing traffic issues on this side as well and I’ve recently started wondering if we need to join forces with all communities involved with excessive traffic, noise, accidents on Beverly Glen. My husband’s car was hit just last week while pulling out of our driveway by someone that waved him to go. Pulling in and out of our driveway, which is right on Van Nuys, is pretty scary…other cars are going WELL above the speed limit (with no speed enforcement in sight) and are on a mission to get over the hill as fast as possible.
