FROM THIS EPISODE

The car capital of the world is divided over the automobile versus public transit and bicycle riding. Mobility Plan 2035 would create a big, new network of bus and bicycle lanes—partly by shrinking the lanes now devoted to cars. The City Council, which approved the project, is now taking it up again—because of a lawsuit by angry Westside drivers. Will lawsuits derail the project? We hear from Council members on both sides. 

Also on the program, the LAPD has opened fire almost twice as often this year as last year — killing 19 people. The new President of the Police Commission will tell us why he wants more public discussion.

Shootings by LAPD Double, Police Commission President Responds 9 MIN, 50 SEC

All over the country, there's heated public debate over police shootings, especially because black Americans are disproportionately on the receiving end. Last year, the LAPD shot 23 people — but this year the number is already 45. State law requires that use-of-force reviews be confidential, but Matthew Johnson, the new president of the Police Commission, wants more public discussion.

The Mobility Plan Gets Another Look at LA City Hall 16 MIN, 26 SEC

Several projects approved by the LA City Council have recently been stopped by lawsuits — after they were already under way. They include a 22-story apartment building, a Target shopping center and two skyscrapers called the Millennium Towers. Now the Council may rescind, revise and re-enact its controversial Mobility Plan 2035, in hopes of preventing the same thing from happening again.
