I’ve driven Highway 1 between Monterey and Morro Bay, in the daytime (breathtaking vistas, a lovely coastline and forest) and at night (a white-knuckler of twisty turns, a surprise pucker at every turn - only because I had to be there the next day). Stay overnight at either end if you must, so the drive is in daylight.
Prohibition didn’t work in the ’20s, corrupting the police, the courts, and the politicians. It hasn’t worked since, and has had the same effects. It’s way past time to put an end to it.
