Driving to a place to walk the dog. Kind of like taking an escalator to the gym.
Over the past three years, the public has been illegally parking and driving in the fire lane area at the Congress Avenue entrance to Rip Van Winkle Open Space.
They have also been parking along the road and driving over tree roots. Alternate access to the open space can only be gained by paying a fee ($9.50) to enter the Country Club Gate to Pebble Beach, or parking in the Methodist Church parking lot on Sunset Drive and fording a gulley.
According to the dog walkers, many of whom are older people with constrained walking abilities, these other options are not workable.
