Seconds count when walking across Sunset Boulevard

Pedestrians crossing Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake

SILVER LAKE -- Nina Sorkin was walking across Sunset Boulevard at Lucile Avenue when she found herself in the midst of traffic. The signal had turned red before Sorkin, who walks with a cane, could finish crossing the busy boulevard. “Since cars continue to go through the yellow and even the red light ... a pedestrian loses some of the precious time allocated to cross," she said. But Sorkin and other Silver Lake pedestrians might soon be getting a little bit more time to cross the road.
