What's nonsensical about the three routes?

The first option listed is always the quickest route. The second route offered is shorter but takes the same amount of time since it takes 'surface streets' (which have lower speeds) instead of the freeways. You could take this route if you wished but why bother with stopping and starting at red lights? The last option takes the longest.

Sorry, please forgive me, where I live if you see a road going through nothing but green that means it is probably a mountain pass which could be closed due to snow, and if you break down no one will be along in a while. It seemed the 1st route was going out of the way, through no mans land, but I know in LA that is not possible, just my gut reaction. I'll take the first option.

There is no snow here, no mountain pass, no closed roads.
