On Deltopia Party Devolves Into Isla Vista Riot

It pains me to say this but I agree with Loon
Look at the chronology
First there was Floatopia and the beach was left a complete mess and there were lots of arrests for public intoxication and several medical emergencies so the County decided to close the beach the next year and that certainly did not work out so well
Then with the beach closed there was Deltopia and lots of arrests for public intoxication and several medical emergencies so the County decided to ban music and stop the party and that year there was even one very unfortunate death
This year music was banned again and they decided to close Del Playa and that certainly did not work out so well either.
It would appear that the more the County tries to close things down the more opposition and antagonism they will create
The solution is more likely to be to reopen the beach, reopen Del Playa, allow all the music and partying and simply expect foolish drunken behavior self-destructive but at the same time avoid the confrontation with authority that will occur when the authorities try to corral or prevent the party entirely
Yes there will be certainly excessive clean up costs and yes local residents will be likely unhappy for another weekend each year (just like Halloween) and yes there will be medical emergencies but there will likely also be fewer arrests for assault on law enforcement officers or for "unlawful assembly" and certainly far less confrontational behavior.
It simply isn't going to go away but trying to stop it entirely wont work.
Instead the County needs to be prepared to handle the situation cooperatively not confrontationally and try to work with the revelers not against them.
I suspect that will result in a far better outcome for all.

Nope Loonie this is the dumbest thing you have ever heard:
"They can't even prove that second hand smoke from regular cigarettes has any negative consequences"
You are not only completely (and I would guess intentionally) ill informed your comment seem to encourage humans to suffer involuntary harm.
I cannot understand how any thinking person could ever entertain such a view but frankly that defined group would exclude you anyway.

As usual our dependable troll loonnie-toon did absolutely no research but merely posted his continually myopic view.
If he had done some basic research he would have learned that second hand vapors are indeed an issue with these contraptions.

The problem is that freeway on ramps and freeway off ramps are entirely different situations.
Left hand freeway on ramps do allow autos to enter at speeds less than acceptable highway speed while on the other hand left freeway hand off ramps do indeed allow them to exit at acceptable highway speed.
I would not mourn the elimination of the uphill left lane freeway entrance on ramp at Sheffield and think routing all of the southbound bound 101 traffic through Summerland to the Wallace freeway on ramp would be a good solution.
However it is left hand freeway exits that seem to be Caltrans' sacred cows, yet I have indeed seen statistics that show fewer accidents on the left lane freeway exit at Hot Springs than at several right lane freeway exits both before and after Hot Springs.
There is simply no empirical evidence that has been presented so far that shows any materially increased danger arising from that left lane freeway exit.
Caltrans wants to eliminate all left lane freeway exits eventually but so far has only based desire that upon internal policy not any other persuasive basis.
To require our local community to not only spend millions more from our available highway funds, but also to endure years longer congestion while we await completion of this freeway work, merely to conform to Caltrans' internal policy makes little sense to me

Tommy Boy, you mistake a challenge of the very credibility of what you write with an ad hominem attack on you.
As for your clear biases, that horse left the barn years ago and anyone who spends a few easy minutes on google can validate concerns about your funding and background
You probably are indeed a myopic fool, (there I now have attacked you personally) but the problem I have is with your propaganda piece that has as it very goal the diversion you now accuse in others in your comments above.
“Please don’t try to prevent climate disaster any longer but instead look only at the impact on the impact poor (while your supporters continue to spew fossil fuel byproducts into the atmosphere)”
That attempt is all the more laughable when one realizes your support is from the 1% who care not one whit about the real issues impacting the poor.
Your stated philosophy no different than falling from an airplane and instead of trying to find a an effective way to make your parachute slow you down before you hit the ground, you instead want to decide what method should be used to clean up the mess after you hit the ground.
We still need to find ways to slow that destructive descent before we focus only on the mess it will leave when it hits.
