No Reckless Walking on the Tracks!

Officials are trying to regulate jaywalking of the residents of East Los Angeles and Boyle Heights about reckless walking and driving on the tracks.

For the first time in half a century, light rail trains will go back to Boyle Heights and East LA. However, officials say that there are a lot of bad habits that could lead to serious injuries or deaths. They are trying to warn people about this.

"The MTA has embarked on an aggressive education campaign, working with law enforcement to get the word out in neighborhoods and visiting 60 schools.

Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar said 14 cameras have been placed at intersections to record left-hand turn violations.

"It's almost 50 years since residents had to negotiate a rail line going through Boyle Heights," Huizar said. "Trains can't stop on a dime.""
