Carmageddon, a Love Story

on July 16, 2011

The worst of it.

I fiddled around for over a week debating whether or not to drive down to the OC to see Tainted Love at the Galexy theater Saturday night. Why? Because it landed smack dab in the middle of “Carmageddon” the nightmare cluster-fuck traffic nightmare that was supposed to clog and congest the highways & byways more than usual – which is almost hard to believe since LA traffic is almost always a nightmare cluster-fuck.

But the greater LA transit system is no Bay Area transit system so I decided to brave the roads and drive.

Flying over the Cahuenga Pass on the 101.

The roads were empty. The only time the freeways look this empty are at the wee hours of a weekend morning.

65 mph through the downtown tangle? Impressive!

Bottom Line: The 405 should close more often.
