Don’t Be a Gate Crasher

Thousands of cars enter the gates of Laguna Woods Village routinely. Based on timing, traffic congestion and reaction time from when a gate arm lifts, it is important for all drivers to adhere to the rules of the road.  

Never assume other drivers will yield the right-of-way. Respecting others’ right-of-way is not limited to yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks or watching carefully to ensure the right-of-way of bicyclists and motorcyclists. Yield your right-of-way when it helps to prevent collisions.

Please use caution if your vehicle and another look like they will enter the gate at or near the same time. Before moving ahead, both drivers must ensure it is clear to proceed and prepare to yield their right-of-way if it helps prevent a collision. Thank you for your time and attention to this important topic and drive safely!
