Los Angeles Traffic

This week I have been getting used to driving around L.A. and finding out where all the streets are. On Thursday I made the mistake of going down Santa Monica Blvd. during rush hour. I have never seen traffic so crazy. Traffic was so backed up that even when there was a green light it was impossible to move. Finally I got off Santa Monica onto a less busy street, but to get home I had to get onto another busy street where we hardly moved in five minutes. Everyone is always talking about how bad traffic is in L.A., but really I don't think I realized how bad. I had seen traffic this bad, but only after things like concerts or bad construction. In L.A. it is everyday everywhere.
