Two days without one little stretch of road and L.A. is goin' nuckin' futs!

Those of us who got around L.A. just fine before there were freeways are laughin' our asses off at this "Carmageddon" bullshit!

Thanks to NothingIsCoolMovie.

Here's some comments on the video:

First they closed the 405,

and I didn't speak out because I didn't drive the 405.

Then they closed the Golden State,

and I didn't speak out because I didn't drive the Golden State.

Then they closed the 101,

and I didn't speak out because I didn't drive the 101.

Then they closed Fairfax and there was no one left to speak out for me.

After Hitler's suicide, the freeway was divided: East 405 (under Latino supervision) and West 405, (controlled by Peoples Republic of Santa Monica). Drivers soon took other routes. Thus began the Cold(water Canyon) War.

Many more.

We're giggling our asses off here too. But then, we giggle our asses off when they predict rain in LA and everybody freaks out. Heh ...

The old saying is that when it rains most places, people get wet, when it rains in L.A., people get killed. They blame stupid driving on the weather, as in "the rain caused three traffic fatalities today".

Apparently all the hype worked. My peeps there are saying there's virtually no traffic in the area.

Around here, for some reason, they start working on a stretch of road that traffic is minimal on, and it's a sure guarentee that everyone in three counties will feel some urge to use it for their business as soon as they hear a lane will be closed.

Very neat response, I liked it.
Still, one can't help but think it has solved the energy crisis.
Niemoller is probably spinning like a super turbine in his grave.

Sorry, no umlauts among my charactors.
