GLENDALE, Calif. (UPI) -- Residents of a California city said officials are ordering them to remove mirrors they placed on trees to help them safely back out of their driveways.

Glendale Avenue residents living north of the Ventura Freeway said Glendale officials have ordered them to take down the mirrors, which they put up to help them safely back out of their driveways amid a lack of speed reduction measures in the area, the Glendale News Press reported Thursday.

The residents said city officials told them the mirrors are not allowed on city-owned trees.

Joseph Vargas, one of the three homeowners who installed the mirrors, said he backs into his driveway because "trying to back out into the street is almost impossible."

Jano Baghdanian, traffic and safety administrator for the city, said the city is concerned about potential damage to the trees. He said the City Council could consider changing the rules if there is sufficient demand.

Thats dumb. Probably what it is is there is less accidents, which means that tow trucks, police officers & the city aren't making any money. Which to me the insurance companies ought to be thankful. Nothing like a city being people friendly.
But you watch, one of those city officials will have an accident & suddenly the idea is wonderful.
We had an intersection that barely had a rise in the ground, people in the area begged & begged for the county to put a 4 way stop. Finally they did, but because one part of the intersection was 4 lanes, people wouldn't see the 4 way stop & speed right through it. People in the area begged & begged for a stop light.
It finally took an accident where 4 children were killed because someone ran the 4 way stop before the county put not one light, but 2 lights across the section of the highway.
amazing....
