Since September 10, 1964, Leisure World, or what has become “Laguna Woods” has been the premier independent living community for people 55 and older in South Orange County, if not all of California.
The development is 2,100 acres of rolling hillsides located just 10 minutes from the historic Laguna Beach. Formerly known as Leisure World, the guard gated community was developed by Ross Cortese.
Home buyers are drawn to the year-round sunshine, and close proximity to dining, shopping, tourist attractions, Saddleback Hospital, and even the Laguna Hills DMV located in the heart of the community at 23535 Moulton Pkwy, Laguna Hills.
DUI Affects Everybody, Even Retirees
The residents of Laguna Woods are just like anybody else, they are prone to being arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. While alcohol-related DUIs are a concern for people of all ages, perhaps a greater concern for the residents of Leisure World are prescription drug DUIs.
Considering that the average age of a resident living in Laguna Woods Village is 78, many are taking one, if not multiple prescription medications.
While residents of Laguna Woods are aware that they can be arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, many elderly drivers don’t realize that they can be arrested for DUI if they are impaired by prescription medications.
Many prescriptions affect one’s ability to drive safely, including:
- Sleeping pills (Ambien and Lunesta)
- Over-the-counter allergy medications
