Memorial vigil at intersection where young pedestrian was killed

More than 150 family and friends gathered Monday night to remember Bo Feng — a 17-year-old Gabrielino High graduate killed in a car accident last month — and to advocate for improved pedestrian safety, the Pasadena Star-News reports.   Her mother explained the objective of the vigil: 

"We want to make it safe for everyone," said Selina Feng, whose 17-year-old daughter was hit by an unidentified driver while crossing the street there July 15. She died from her injuries the following day."

Feng was preparing to enter San Diego State University, where she wanted to study writing, the Star-News reports. 

A movement has started to make the intersection safer. Feng's classmate Kimiko Nishitsuji created a petition which has more than 1000 signatures.

  1. There seems to be a lot of hit/runs in the city of Alhambra, but the city council does not seem to be responsive to these “accidents”/deaths. Only the newspapers “The Pasadena Star-News” reports these hit/runs; I have counted an average of three/month – while the “newspaper” published by the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce in it “police activities” never mentions these hit/runs/accidents. Why the cover-up by the city council & chamber?

      Cover-up? What are you talking about?

      And why blame city council when EVERYONE should participate in our city’s safety…

      Seems like all you want is to lay the blame game against the city and expect something for nothing.
