YAWNmageddon crawls on

Carmageddon has become YAWNmageddon.
** Sunday Morning Update: So Cal motorists prepare to start your engines! The end of Carmageddon/Yawnmageddon is near as Mayor Ahhhmageddon Villar takes to the Mulholland Bridge at a 10:30AM. photo op, announcing the re-opening of the 405. Unofficial word is that the freeway will re-open in stages starting at 11:00AM with unrestricted access by 4PM.

** 11PM Update: Three hour long pursuit playing out on the local stations. A possible "third-striker" heading up the I-5 after making tour of So Cal Freeway grid. This chase ranks up there with the infamous "Range Rover Chase" that terminated on the Cornejo Grade years back. The chase ended in the darkness of the Grapevine at 11:15PM when CHP deployed spike strip. Two arrested and no one injured.

Can we say political fearmongering? Stay away! The closure is coming!

Supervisor Zev takes credit for coining the phrase "Carmageddon" but thanks to KFI's John and Ken, Mayor Villar is the inspiration for "Ahhhhmageddon"

"WWG2" aka Bill Boyarsky touts economic benefits of Carmageddon.

Carmageddon does New Zealand!

Will the "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" needs a "Story Budget Deficit Limit Increase" for its ceaseless coverage of "YAWNmageddon"?

Of the multiple choice answers to your question, is there one that is accurate? I'm picking "a," but 'am curious if such a person actually called.

The public was informed and that's why everyone stayed off the streets. Clearly the publicity and warnings WORKED. I myself drove on Sepulveda yesterday evening for the ten-mile stretch and it was surreal to see both the empty freeway and very few cars on Sepulveda.

Great photo op for the mayor. He has been on every news channel.

I don't care if people want to stand in grid lock traffic or not. That is their choice. And, I choose not too.

405 was just too much hype.

Yes, there was a lot of hype, but it WORKED. If they hadn't warned us and everyone drove their cars on Saturday, you'd be complaining about the gridlock and traffic jams.
