Friedman, Sherman Oaks dentist, paints his own crosswalk across Ventura boulevard after city turned down petition for crosswalk for two years."; Dr. Louis J. Friedman had submitted 2 petitions within 2 years for a crosswalk across Murietta Ave. and Ventura Blvd. citing that no crosswalk was hurting the businesses in the area because people could not cross the street.
