My children, who grew up in Laguna Beach, spent the summer vacation here in July with the grandkids. They noticed the aggressiveness and irritation of so many drivers now. My son thought of a slogan we can use while driving in town: go slow, Laguna!
Many small towns in Europe are tranquil. Can we aspire to that?
I later read that when a cohort of a few change the dynamics of driving, it spreads to many others. As a pedestrian and a driver, I have said to myself, “go slow, Laguna,” while at four-way stops and so do not get angry when others jump their turn. Then I can continue to enjoy this beautiful place I call home.
