Traffic study ranks Los Angeles as world's most clogged city

When it comes to getting stuck in traffic on the way to and from work, Los Angeles leads the world.

Drivers in the car-crazy California metropolis spent 104 hours each driving in congestion during peak travel periods last year. That topped second-place Moscow at 91 hours and third-place New York at 89, according to a traffic scorecard compiled by Inrix, a transportation analytics firm.

Orlando's no picnic either.  Didn't care for Boston traffic either.  NY was probably the worst I ever had to drive in.  Used to drive a cab and delivery vans years back in NY.

I remember when L.A. had a terrific "red car" line.  The express started in San Fernando and ended in Santa Monica near the pier.  It made one stop in Hollywood.  And it was cheap!  (There were also "local" Red cars.)

It was GM that conned L.A. into removing those cars and tracks and building a freeway over the Hollywood pass.  (Geez, I wonder why?)  Traffic over that pass has been choked ever since it was opened.
In fact, it was so successful they built another one, the 405, from Tarzana, over the pass to Westwood--the home of UCLA.

They've continued to try to outdo themselves every year since, which is one of the reasons I left L.A. in 1955 to come to San Jose.
Got tired of inhaling the exhaust from the guy in front of me on every "freeway"  Grin Grin
