I know there's probably a dozen of these threats, but LA traffic is horrible!!

I guess with all the Dodger Games, traffic has been worst than ever...
I work in DTLA, and live in Pasadena... Yesterday it took me almost 1.5 hours to get home!! WTF!!!

Is only 15 miles from DTLA to my house... why should it take me 1.5 hours!!

I think LA has hit an all time low on traffic. I guess because the economy is good, everyone is just driving around for no reason!! (most are i guess)....

I'll be heading home again in about an hour....is game 7.... I guess traffic will be even worst today!!

The traffic has made LA pretty much unliveable for many. I'm fortunate that my commute is only 5 miles (but still easily half an hour each way) and I live in a walkable area. But if I had to do what most do - I'd just leave.

Terrible traffic is just a small price to pay for all the joys the diversity visa lottery has given us...

I'm just glad my commute does not involve driving right now.

How does it feel to be so culturally enriched?

Fortunately not so much of a problem out here though. I doubt our problem immigrants here were eligible in the first place for diversity visas. Not like NY

Oh, it's fantastic. I just love being multiculturally enriched by people who crowd my personal space, who almost hit my car because that's how they drive back home, who speak around 20-30 decibels louder than we quiet talking Americans, and so forth. I feel so blessed...

Because people in Pasadena don't want the 710 completed.

Judging from the CD forum, you would think it's a city of rednecks
