Sunday Los Angeles Driving Shortcuts

Jan 30, 2011 by Lisa Newton

Legendary, and world-famous, Los Angeles, is unfortunately “notorious” for one issue: the amount of amount of traffic on our roads.

LA drivers can and will usually encounter automatic delays when they need or want to go somewhere, even though the time that they want to get there is harpooned by our current reality.

As well, LA and Southern California freeways, although called “free,” consume massive amounts of both time and gas, making driving not only a time consuming proposition but also one that’s much aore expensive then it should be.

Travelin’ Local supports all of the green and eco-friendly efforts to reduce the number of cars on our roads and highways, and for people to find alternative forms of transportation–mostly public.

However, even with the changes currently imminent via more and different types of green cars, the amount of vehicles on the road are still expected to increase.

So while we’re in in favor of less people driving, sometimes it’s a bare knuckles reality and the only practical alternative we have here; so, drive we do.

In fact, in 2007, we spent an average of 70 hours stuck in traffic, ranking Los Angeles as the worst city in America with respect to traffic.

I don’t think there is anything typical any more for Los Angeles freeways. What once was called rush hour, turned into rush hours, then that morphed into basically one long, non-stop, never ending rush to stop or so it seems. Source: Christian Science Monitor

Wouldn’t it be great to have a few shortcuts to get from here to there?

With a little bit of research, and some personal experience, Travelin’ Local has found a few freeway shortcuts that will help our fellow Angelenos beat the averages for time spent on the road; like taking Olympic Boulevard instead of the 10 or taking Centenila Boulevard to LAX instead of the 405.

Indeed, we’ve created the map below-which is open for your feedback and collaboration–especially, if you have another or additional favorite traffic shortcut.

Indeed, feel free to add it to our map below by using the link at the bottom:
