possibly the worst traffic bottleneck in all of LA.

and then add the fact that the city decided to put an all-way pedestrian crossing there... LMFAO! literally the worst place to put that.

80% of the bad traffic in LA is created by the idiots who control the traffic lights.

THERE IS 0 LIGHT SYNCHRONIZATION IN MOST OF THE CITY

Have you ever driven through Beverly Hills via Santa Monica Blvd?

The lights are in sync so you leave Beverly Hills VERY fast. now try to do the same thing via Wilshire. LOLOL! looks like a god damn christmas tree.

surprised the people of LA haven't voted to fire the traffic lights controllers.

Beverly Hills is full of smart, wealthy people with tons of tax dollars that make smart decisions.

City of LA ... not always the case.

Hollywood and Highland is the worst. I try to avoid it whenever possible when traveling near there.

SMB through BH also has very limited pedestrian crossings compared to H&H. Have you ever driven Wilshire through BH, that's a total cluster**** as well. There are plenty of streets in LA city that are synced well. I remember Olympic and Pico through west LA used to be synced when i commuted in that area. Here in the valley, many of the major boulevards have traffic lights synced and you can go miles without hitting a red light, even during rush hour in some cases.

Worst bottlenecks in LA are Sunset and Wilshire just west of the 405. Hollywood and Highland doesn't even come close.

Hollywood and Highland can be pretty bad, but I don't think it's the worst traffic bottleneck. Of course traffic can be terrible during Hollywood Bowl events , so it makes more sense to use Vine or another street.

The worst traffic bottleneck is probably Sunset Blvd in Brentwood around rush hour. I haven't kept up with the 405 construction, but I'm guessing it's still pretty bad. I'm not in Brentwood during rush hour anymore so I don't know if it's still as insane.

Getting around Hollywood/Highland is super easy. Only tourists drive directly through it. Just use Franklin or Sunset.
