We had a minor hit-and-run case in which the victim was my neighbor’s son, who got hit by a speeding vehicle, but luckily he survived. When the police asked the driver of the vehicle why she was speeding, the response was that the boy had jumped in front of her car unexpectedly.
The teenagers in Glendale and Burbank, when they sit behind a vehicle, they have to think about the safety of people inside and outside of the vehicle.
One piece of advice that was told to me when I was a teenager and first got my license was that you are not alone on the street, so care about your safety and other people’s safety while driving and other people would do the same.
So let all of us, especially teenagers, drive according to the speed limit so we make a safer city for the pedestrians and motorcyclists because all of us are pedestrians, and we don’t want to be run over by a speeding car. We have had lots of moments when a child or elderly person were about to get run over by a speeding car.
We all know that if we do something bad, it will return to us in any form. So if we speed and, God forbid, hit a child, we may, God forbid, have our own children run over by a car.
Let’s drive safely.

Are you sure about that, Mr. Mayor?
One week in office, and we are already building up a ton of “Bric colloquialisms.”
“To be honest with you” — does that mean sometimes he’s not honest with us?
“I didn’t mean to interrupt you” — yes, he constantly does it.
“I didn’t like your tone of voice” — his attack on Councilman David Gordon was atrocious and uncalled for. I guess asking deep, probing questions he considers an attack and talking down to someone.
“I apologize” — good grief. Everything he says, he has to apologize for.
