The 101, The Worst...

The Train Cowboy lives in Hollywood, close to the 101... and he might have been able to guess this, but here is evidential proof...

here is one quote with stats:
"Research has found that the freeway has 686 hours of weekly bottleneck congestion with the worst bottleneck found at Vermont Avenue in southbound lanes (we agree!). That bottleneck tends to be .64 miles with the speed of 14 mph."

We raced down the 101 for My Way or The Highway and Joe the Car Guy was definitely slowed to a snail's pace on the 101 at Vermont... while the Train Cowboy cruised along on the LA Metro, playing Sudoku and listening to Mozart! 8>)
