misleading video, traffic was moving in both directions, that rarely happens during daylight hours.

slow that video down to 1/8 speed and you'll get an idea of the daily grind during normal weekday commutes.

ok ill give you another example of my personal video of a friday night at 6 pm aka rush hour i-405 sound bound the same route but this time all the way to the 105 ! this freeway is not what it is all hyped up to be as far as congested 20 hours a day.
