We live in an area with very busy streets, with the traffic often causing people to try to "beat" the signal or drive faster that they otherwise might. Just last week, there were two incidents in Carmel Valley where people were hit by cars: In Torrey Hills, a man was killed when jaywalking across Carmel Mountain Road, and a nanny pushing a stroller was hit (minor injuries) crossing Carmel Creek Road near Piazza Carmel. As the community development increases (with the build-out of Pacific Highlands Ranch, additional development at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, and the eventual construction of something at the One Paseo site), the traffic will only get worse. If you're driving or walking out there, please try to be careful!
