A Pasadena woman is claiming the city is liable for a biking accident that caused her to lose her sense of taste and smell. Janice Campbell, 46, filed a claim with the city Monday, alleging that negligence on its part led to her being struck by a cyclist in a crosswalk in Huntington Beach. A claim is the precursor for a lawsuit. Campbell is asking for an unknown amount of more than $10,000. She suffered traumatic head injury and lost her sense of taste and smell. According to the claim, the street lights were incorrectly timed with an insufficient lag time between red lights for traffic and green pedestrian signals.

Limit crosswalks to lighted intersections I believe that Huntington Beach needs to do away with the pedestrian crossing signs on Pacific Coast Highway that are not at a light. People have a false sense of security thinking that cars zooming on the road will stop at a crosswalk that is not even marked with white lines nor at a signal. The worst offenders are the crosswalk signs on Pacific Coast Highway that do not even have white lines marked. Cars will not and cannot stop.
