Road diets are decimating local businesses.

Across the country ‘Road Diets’ on major boulevards cost businesses dearly. Small mom and pop shops which contribute to the unique character of our communities are usually the ones hurt the most by a road diet. As customers give up on fighting the traffic and find other places to shop some storess relocate and others are forced to close altogether. Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Seattle, the story iss always the same. When lanes and/or parking are removed and traffic backs up customers find other places to shop.

In Playa del Rey the local Chamber of Commerece wrote a letter to their City Councilman requesting the road diet be reversed due to it’s impact on local business.
