Another Motion to curb traffic navigation apps has been introduced out of concern traffic apps have been clogging side streets with drivers and sending them into evacuated areas during emergencies.
Councilmember Paul Koretz (CD5) introduced a Motion immediately after December’s Skirball Fire that would direct the LAFD and Department of Transportation to report on efforts to coordinate with navigation app developers to prevent directing drivers into evacuated areas.
Last Tuesday, Councilmember Paul Krekorian (CD2) wants answers from the Department of Transportation to explain the current City partnership with these navigational apps and what efforts have been made by these app companies to address neighborhood concerns, etc. The Motion was seconded by Councilmember Paul Koretz.
