Letter: Through Traffic to Blame

Letter to the Editor

Traffic accidents and delays are huge concerns in Malibu. Much of unacceptable waiting to get anywhere is caused by through traffic. People driving through Malibu on their way up and down the coast add to the burden. Z traffic slows the commute to and from distant work places. 

I don’t know anyone who would advocate a lower speed limit. However, I wonder how much slowing would deter through traffic. 

Would anyone be interested in a study to determine how much slower we would need to go to deter through traffic, and get there sooner? Would slowing down reduce the accident rate, and would a leisurely pace be worth it? Maybe not or maybe?
