Stumping for the traffic vote

Mayor Jim Hahn rode out to Victory and Sepulveda yesterday to announce another batch of steps for making traffic flow better on 35 major streets. It's nothing more innovative than left-turn arrows, retimed lights, aggressive towing of ilegally parked cars at rush hour and deploying traffic officers during bottlenecks. Rival Bob Hertzberg pshaws it as Hahn taking credit for others' ideas. Stories in the Times, Daily News and Daily Breeze.
