What is one thing Los Angeles is famous for?

Mar 12, 2009 by Lisa Newton

I should have used the word “infamous” but I wanted to get your attention.

Unfortunately our paradise is marred by one major ubiquitous problem:


Yesterday, I was on the 405 (Here in LA, the freeways are always preceded with the word “The.” I don’t know why, but that’s just the way it is.)

It was only noon, so when I got on the 405, I wasn’t expecting too much traffic, but nonetheless, I was wrong. The traffic wasn’t too bad, but it did last for 15 awful minutes. Thank goodness I wasn’t driving, and I used that time to snap some pictures:

And so it begins.

Take a look at my side of the freeway versus the other side. Can you guess what happened?

You guessed it, an accident; but on the other side of the freeway!

Thank goodness the local police and fire department were there to help with the situation.

Ok, now I’m moving, but the other side is not.

Well, in Los Angeles, the free moving freeway doesn’t always move free. However, if you look at the background you’ll see the mountains.

Do you have traffic while you’re Travelin’ Local? If so, the is radio always an option…………………….:) Using your cell phone without hands free is now outlawed in California without Bluetooth.

It’s an old cliché—but people here are always talking, on the move, and dreaming the California dream.

    Sitting in slow moving traffic on the 405 is one thing that I remember well. That’s probably the reason I didn’t do more sight seeing when I lived in LA. It’s nice to be able to enjoy those points of interest on your blog. Keep up the great work!

    @ Diane C. I don’t do the 405 often and when I do, I almost never do it during high traffic times. But, the freeway is part of life here for most people……….:)
