When I'm not traveling, I'm working from home, which means effectively, I rarely need to venture on the freeways at Rush Hour. This gives me a skewed view of Los Angeles because when people talk about the traffic these day, I'm thinking, "What traffic? The traffic in Seattle or the Bay Area is so much worse!"
This is, of course, because I've perfected the art of avoiding traffic in LA, but these techniques do not work in the Bay Area or Seattle because of these pesky bodies of water you need to drive around. If you are stuck in traffic on a bridge, there's not much you can do about it!
