It seems that Moraga’s alleged obsession with speed has turned into an obsession with stopping it. When the first few new stop signs popped up a few years ago, it appeared to be a step toward making the town safer for drivers and pedestrians.
As the last few years have passed, stop signs and speed bumps have become commonplace on Moraga’s roads. Camino Pablo has been a road, an obstacle course for cars and everything in between.
The Moraga Police Department does its fair share of stopping speed as well by handing out tickets to speeders all over town. There is no doubt they would win a game of hide-and-seek with the way they are able to hide their cars from oncoming vehicles. Just take a look in the trees off of St. Mary’s Road or the bushes off of Rheem Boulevard next time you drive by.
So, what is worse: the number of drivers who speed in Moraga or the town’s obsession with slowing everyone down?
