New Laws For 2017

Put Down That Cellphone!

Drivers are no longer permitted to hold a cellphone or electronic wireless communications device while driving a motor vehicle. The device must be mounted in the 7-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver or in a 5-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest to the driver.

Shop Cell Phone Car Mounts

Another option is to affix the device to the dashboard in a place that does not obstruct the driver’s clear view of the road and does not interfere with the deployment of an airbag. The law does allow a driver to operate one of these devices with the motion of a single swipe or tap of the finger, but not while holding it.

Shop Cell Phone Car Mounts

An Uber driver recently recommended this one to my husband.

Car Seat Update

Children younger than two must sit in rear facing car seats. The law will not apply to children who weigh more than 40 pounds or are 40 inches or taller.

New Driving Under The Influence Rules

Those convicted of driving under the influence must install a device in their cars that would ensure they are sober before they can start the ignition.

Drivers for companies like Uber and Lyft can’t have a blood alcohol content of 0.04% or more.

Ripped From SVU

Prison time will be mandatory for those convicted of assault in which the victim was unconscious or not capable of giving consent because of intoxication.

Synthetic Drug “Spice”

A ban is in place on possession of a synthetic drug called “spice.” The first offense would be an infraction; the second or third offense would be a misdemeanor.

Cyberbullying Is Grounds For Expulsion

Public schools can now expel students for bullying through video or sexting. State education officials will be required to publish information on sexual cyberbullying online and encourage schools to teach students about sexting.

New Regulation For Semi-Automatic Rifles

People will no longer be able to buy semi-automatic rifles that have a bullet button allowing removal of the ammunition magazine. Those that have such weapons will have to register them with the state.

No e-Cigs Within 250′ Of Youth Sports

Smoking or use of electronic cigarettes within 250 feet of any Little League baseball game or other youth sports event is now illegal.
Want to save an animal trapped in a hot car? As long as you call authorities first, you won’t be held legally liable for breaking into the car.

Would You Like Wine With That Haircut?

Beauty salons and barbershops can now offer patrons a free beer or glass of wine.

For complete information on bills enacted in 2016, please refer to the Legislative Counsel website.

❤ Westchester Weekly – December 18, 2016 ❤

The Westchester Weekly – your weekly round-up
of news for Westchester Families

Here’s your weekly recap of what’s new and notable in Westchester 90045!

Living90045.com - Westchester CA up close & personal

Happy Sunday!

LAUSD voted this week to approve the new Middle School program to co-locate at Westchester High School and our kids are not invited. Boo! Not only did LAUSD refuse to acknowledge requests from our community to increase the size of the program, the school board also made a last minute revision to the Tier 2 enrollment priority (where our local kids are) to add Windsor Hills and View Park students. Sigh. Stay tuned for January, when you’ll start hearing more about a promising candidate to unseat Steve Zimmer as our school board representative.

And on to something decidedly more upbeat, Happy Holidays from me, my family and the crew at Living90045! We wish you all the things you hold dear for the season. We’re taking next weekend off to enjoy some family time and we’ll “see” you in the New Year!

Meanwhile, as you figure out what to do with the kids and out of town guests this season, don’t forget to check out our 90045 calendar of events. We listed 38 activities for this weekend alone!

Here are links to a couple of news items that caught our eye this week:

Feel like Christmas caroling today in Westchester?
Ready for the next round of elections?
Councilman Bonin calls on Planning Department to systematically update Community Plans
A list of fun places to see amazing Christmas lights
The best places to see Santa

Have a great week!

Tracy’s Favorite 90045 Listings This Week

6619 W. 88th Street $799,000

90045 Real Estate NewsA great example of why you don’t want a discount broker to list your house for sale. The house is overpriced, the property photos were clearly taken with a cell phone, and the guy offered 1% to the agent who brings the buyer (2.5-3% is standard). So what does that all add up to? 108 days on market and Tracy writing about what an idiot you are. 😉 This house presents an opportunity to double the square footage to live in yourself, or the photos make the property look like it might be clean enough to put a tenant into it right away. By the way, Emerson Manor, where this property is located, will be a highly desirable place to live when the LAX buffer improvements are made. Drop me a note to tour.

90045 Real Estate News5887 W. 77th Place $999,000

Last call for this sweet Westport Heights starter home with room to enlarge as your family grows. The property is in escrow, but active under contract. This means you can put in an offer to be in position if the buyer can’t perform. This is an 1800+ foot updated home on a 6702 foot lot. This an outstanding deal at its current list price of $999K. Drop me a note to tour, but don’t delay. 🙂

Westchester Weekly – November 27, 2016

The Westchester Weekly – your weekly round-up
of news for Westchester Families

Here’s your weekly recap of what’s new and notable in Westchester 90045, delivered to your inbox!
Living90045.com - Westchester CA up close & personal

Happy Sunday!
And a belated happy Thanksgiving as well! We are so grateful for our readers and take our job bringing you the 90045 news very seriously.

News came last week that the old Westchester fire station has been recommended for sale, not development by the City for affordable housing. It remains to be seen what somebody will want to build on that site, but that is a discussion we can save for another day. Given the dismal sales at the project on the old Frio’s site, maybe we can dodge a developer that wants to stuff the lot with AB1818 housing.

LAUSD is taking another run at offering a second Middle School program in Westchester. While I understand that there local families who support the existing MS, I also understand that many families in 90045 have turned away from the local program. Playa Vista Elementary School has a highly successful STEM program they developed with LMU. That group of families has been instrumental in driving the new MS program. There is a meeting at Westchester High School in the auditorium on Tuesday at 6 pm to discuss the proposed program, which is intended to be an option for PV, PdR and 90045 families.

Speaking of schools, I was honored to sit on a panel recently for the CA Charter School Association to interview school board candidates for March’s race. One candidate was particularly colorful. Stay tuned. We’ll be hearing a lot more about the race in January.

As you plan holiday activities for your family and out of town guests this season, be sure to look at the 90045 calendar of events. We’re working overtime over here to get all the most interesting local and local-adjacent activities on the calendar. Did you know that Playa Provisions hosts an annual Snow Day in PdR? Don’t miss that gem coming up in two weeks.

Here are links to a couple of news items that caught our eye this week:

LMU is offering the public an app to get campus emergency alerts
LAUSD Eyes New Middle School In Westchester
Finding Peace In Chaotic Times
Schedule For LAPD Pacific Santa Sleigh Stops
The Sand Berms Are Up In Playa del Rey

Have a great week!
Tracy & The Living90045 Team
