Shocked by the horrific road raging motorist vs. cyclists incident on Mandeville Canyon Road this past holiday weekend, the cycling community has rallied in the last four days to fight for justice and to ensure that Los Angeles city leadership, law enforcement and the judicial system respond to incidents such as this.

Brad House, council district 15 representative to the LA Bicycle Advisory Committee (LABAC), which is the official body charged with advising the LA City Council and Mayor on cycling issues, brought the incident to LAist contributor Stephen Box's attention, and called for immediate action from the LABAC.

Other members agreed that the LABAC must act decisively, so a discussion took place internally about convening an emergency meeting of the LABAC.
