At last Thursday’s Village Merchant’s Association meeting, a rather alarming point came up: in the event of natural disaster (ie. Earthquake, Tsunami) in La Jolla, road access to higher and safer ground is almost non-existent. Anybody who leaves work after 3 p.m. will testify to the sea of cars migrating slowly up Torrey Pines Road towards the 5 and the 52. The only people who stand a chance of getting away are those with motorbikes, Smart Cars, bicycles and sturdy running sneakers.
While the risk of earthquakes is not something anybody likes thinking about, it’s an eventuality we need to be prepared for – no matter how unpleasant.
