Laura J. Nelson's Biography

I write about transportation issues, including light-rail, buses, parking, commuting and the bike/ped community, and cover LA's county and city transportation agencies.

I've previously covered national news, business-tech and local politics. I grew up in suburban Kansas City and studied French and journalism at USC.

If your pitch has a Los Angeles angle, I want to hear it: laura.nelson@latimes.com.

Prayers for Steven Sotloff's loved ones. Last week, his mother said, "He is an honorable man and has always tried to help the weak."
