On Christmas day we were driving down to San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. It was about 10:30 a.m. and raining. We were just passing where Highway 1 intersects the I-5, and the freeway lanes disappeared. The road in that area has the current striping; the old striping that Caltrans removed, but with the...
