SB-127 Applies to Laguna Canyon Road and PCH
Caltrans claims to make streets safer when they make roadway improvements, like the $39 million Caltrans improvement planned for Laguna Canyon Road beginning 2021.
Caltrans often claims to make streets safer when they repair them, but in practice they prioritize fast traffic over more livable streets. The Complete Streets for Active Living Bill will provide Caltrans stronger direction, and force the safety improvements necessary to reverse the poor safety record on SR-133.

"In California from 2007-2013, nearly 1.7 million people were injured in traffic incidents, including 95,758 while walking along or across the street. In those crashes, 22,117 people were killed, with pedestrians accounting for one-fifth of the total persons killed." The problem is often concentrated around Caltrans roads that go through low-income neighborhoods where more people get around via transit, biking, and walking."
