Friday, Aug 26, 2016

WASHINGTON, Aug. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Full Disclosure Network (FDN) is releasing an Internet Video featuring  Real Estate Mogul James A. Thomas who is confronting the scourge of traffic gridlock, now clogging the streets, arteries, neighborhoods and freeways of Los Angeles, the nation's second largest city.   

At a recent FDN "Critical Issues" Luncheon Thomas presented his plan to stop traffic gridlock in Los Angeles.  Jim Thomas is known for changing the LA SkyLine with such landmarks as the Library Tower, Gas Company tower and Wells Fargo Center.  His most recent project earned him the title of "the man with the plan" to stop traffic gridlock.  He formed the "FAST" organization and won the backing of many prominent civic leaders and organizations to restore traffic flow in the L. A. region by hiring the Rand Corporation whose traffic study and recommendations were adopted and approved by governmental agencies.

Also appearing in the video discussion segment at 20:38 min.  are:   LAPD Assistant Chief David Gascon (ret), Bill Ahmanson, President Ahmanson Foundation, Wendy Garen, President Ralph M. Parsons Foundation,  H. Andrew Thornburg, Corporate Turnaround Consultant, Hilary Norton, FAST Executive Director

Solutions To Stop Gridlock

Among FAST proposals that could yield quick results are "paired streets" for heavy traffic areas like Vanowen & Victory Blvd. in the San Fernando Valley and Olympic Blvd. and Pico Blvd. in West L. A.  A simple redirection of lanes and prohibition of parking during peak hours on these East-West streets were cited as easily implemented solutions.

Public Support  Awareness of Gridlocked Intersections

A key component of the FAST Plan is public understanding there are solutions to solving the Traffic Gridlock problem.  Thomas is reaching out to residents of Los Angeles who are concerned about safe ways to prevent congestion, and to improve the flow of traffic while protecting neighborhoods by discouraging motorist short-cuts and racing through populated neighborhood streets.
