Warning Sign Blocked - Santa Anita at Lower Azusa

New 3-25-05

A reader sent these before-and-after photos of the Santa Anita / Lower Azusa intersection, showing that a required warning sign (see Defect # 4) was blocked by a palm tree, until March 11, 2005.   The obscured warning sign would affect the validity of all tickets at that intersection, not just the southbound left turn.  The photos are date-stamped.

The first two photos show the sign, and the tree before it was trimmed.

In the pre-trimming photo below, you can see just the upper left corner of the sign, peeking out from behind the palm fronds.

The next two photos show that the tree has been trimmed, with fresh cuts.
