I went to school and lived in LA/Long Beach for 13 years, so I extend my sincerest condolences to all who will be driving during Carmageddon this weekend. It could get ugly, so try to stay a)off the roads; b)calm; and c)refer back to 'a'. In the meantime, Maners, let's all give these poor souls doomed to a weekend of hot weather, backed up sidestreets, and aggravating drivers in 86 Chevettes, something to smile about. Post something funny or encouraging for 'em, would ya?

I still remember when they tore up the 55 and building that triangle square thingy. That was a mess for me. Shutting down the 405 is HUGE.

That's going to be real fun.

having never been to, and no desire to go to, LA, is there alternate routes people can plan to take? or is that the one and only, people will just take it anyway?

There are other options but non of them good. Other freeways take you way out of the way and the side streets are going to be fubar. The section they are closing is through a pass in the Santa Monica mountains (really hills).

Worst moment on the 405... Broke down in the middle of the 405/605 interchange at rush hour traffic. I was driving a friends fancy sports car at the time. Nothing screams d***H**** more than a bright yellow Lambo smoking in the middle lane. I learned that V12s don't like to idle much.

Thank god it was a parking lot or I'd been killed sitting like a bright yellow duck in that damn thing. Then I'm fighting with the tow trucker because he wanted to haul the thing without a flatbed. I swear a few people were waving guns at me (the few that weren't laughing anyway) :giggle:

Good thing I dont travel that far north on the 405, but it shouldn't be that bad out there.

I agree. I think there were be some major traffic in certain areas, but people are acting like it's going to be the end of the world. Like every street and freeway in the city is going to be a big parking lot. I'm not going to the valley, so I don't think I'll have any issues driving around LA. But anybody trying to go over the hill, yeah, just don't do it. You'll never get to where you're trying to go.

I drove down the entire 405 closure route today and let me tell you... The friday traffic was pretty much non existant. I drove 65-75mph when normally it woulf be stop and go most of the way. My 25 minute drive each way today is normally 1.5 hours.

I do not fear Carmageddon.... I also will not be driving anywhere near there this weekend so it is a non factor.

They've announced this so far in advance, I don't see the problem. Do people in that area have an aversion to staying home for two days? Or try something new, like walking, bicycle riding.

DE-FENSE!

Great movie. For those in South LA, OC, SD and inland empire shouldnt feel the wrath of the 405 closure. Those flying in to LAX and needing to go north? ****ing dumb****s! If they didn't know better, then they had no family members in the area. My wife, kids and inlaws are coming back from up north on Sunday and I told my wife to take the 5 to 210 (or was it the 215) through Pasadena. The detour of this is going to be ugly. Im staying hunkered down in OC and Long Beach this weekend.

TO my friends and family that live there, please move so we can nuke those liberal nutjobs.

In return I will move from Texas so we can nuke these neo-con nutjobs at the same time and be better off for it.
