instead operates the canyon road like a freeway where hot-rods are not
discouraged from racing. Patrons want to put a 'safe' crosswalk at LCAD. Ever see a safe crosswalk on a freeway? When 10,000 Altura Laguna residents descend on Laguna for beach access, the conditions for road users on LCR will become even worse. When will the city of Laguna Beach or CalTRANS get control of this road?
