Road rage on Angeles Crest Highway prompts call for bicycle safety signs
A La Cañada resident is asking Caltrans to increase bicyclist safety along Angeles Crest Highway by replacing missing signage that reminds vehicle drivers to share the road.
Trent Sanders emphasized in an email to Dale Benson, Caltrans senior transportation engineer in charge of bicycle and pedestrian safety, the importance of replacing three such signs that burned down in the 2009 Station fire.
Sanders said he was inspired to start pushing for the increased signage when he read about the arrest in June of La Crescenta resident Earl Clyde Cox for a road rage incident in which he threatened a group of cyclists on the highway with his vehicle.
