This Is The City

Make sure you have access to GPS Navigation/Sat Nav as this truly is a commuter's city. Los Angeles can be a confusing tangle of highways, freeways and boulevards- even for those that live here.


A Sat Nav system with traffic application can save you hours of time as you avoid jams and congestion. In LA, there are any number of ways to get where you want to go. The trick is to pick the quickest way and avoid unnecessary delays- LA's world famous traffic jams! GoogleMaps with the traffic feature enabled is a good way to go. It will show you which routes are slow or stopped so you can take an alternate path. Also, if you travel with a companion or two, take advantage of the carpool lanes. Although, at rush hour, they can be just as bad as the regular lanes.
