A councilman's office is calling it the city's biggest effort to close businesses that fail to clean up prostitution, with nearly a dozen motels along notorious Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys targeted for investigation by city zoning officials. But the Van Nuys police sergeant responsible for community-based policing in the area says the prostitution problem has been exaggerated.

I commute from Reseda to Beverly Hills five days a week. Between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. I am on Sepulveda Boulevard. The reverse lane nine times out of 10 is not there, or they are picking the cones up. When it's there, it works. But I would rather the city, at the ridiculous sum of $267,000, give the money to charity, and I'll sit in my car. MICHAEL TROCCHIA Reseda

Decrying the loss of a recently discontinued car-pool lane for Valley commuters headed home from the Westside over the Sepulveda Pass, Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce officials are asking the city to restore the lane and make it available to all motorists. Chamber President Jeff Brain said Wednesday that he would call on Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavksy for assistance in getting the lane back. "This was really beneficial to Sherman Oaks residents," Brain said.

Ultimately, it was those little orange traffic cones that may have brought the car-pool lane on Sepulveda Boulevard to a dead end. The cones were used to create a northbound lane for about a mile on the southbound side of the street where it crosses Sepulveda Pass, giving homeward-bound car-poolers and buses an unobstructed drive from the Westside into the San Fernando Valley every weekday afternoon.

Having grown up on the Westside, I have an intimate acquaintance with, and love for, the area. Everyone I know is aware that Sepulveda Boulevard between Pico and Santa Monica boulevards has for many years been home to not one but numerous animal hospitals and kennels (Times, Feb. 14). As the community expanded, those businesses were welcomed, approved by law, and successful. I have known Martha Wyss, the AM & PM Dog Kennel manager, for a long time and can attest that she is a woman of great integrity, with an impressive background of experience in caring for our pets.

So few motorists are using an innovative high-occupancy vehicle lane on Sepulveda Boulevard that it may be eliminated soon, Los Angeles officials said Tuesday. The lane, which runs northbound every weekday from the Westside to the San Fernando Valley, carried 17% of the road's traffic when it was established in June, 1991. That number has dropped to 12%, Los Angeles Department of Transportation officials said.

Employees of four motels along Sepulveda Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Sepulveda were cited for renting rooms to prostitutes in an undercover sting operation that owners and managers characterized Thursday as unfair and dishonest. Los Angeles vice officers said they specifically told motel clerks that they were renting rooms to use with prostitutes, but some motel owners said their employees do not understand English well enough to know what the officers meant.
