WTF. It's never good, though at least during Jewish Holidays, you can occasionally zoom through the boulevards a little quicker. This morning was like that, but last night, oy!
I decided to take Santa Monica east from Beverly Hills, but an electronic sign said that at some point the street was closed. WTF!
So, having already come up from a boulevard further south, I decide to head north. I take Sunset and, as usual, it's a bit of a crawl to La Cienega and then opens up until it's gridlock around La Brea. So, north I go to Hollywood.
Whoops. I'm at the corner of Temple Israel and everybody and their grandmother is going to Rosh Hashana. And, I'm not at a light and the car in front of me wants to take a left on Hollywood?! Where's the civility. I wait.
I finally turn right and I cruise past La Brea and then again another electric sign saying that Hollywood Blvd. is closed. WTF.
Seriously, the city cannot close two major east/west boulevards so relatively close to each other at the same time. It's just wrong.
So, I head down south again on Highland, pass lots of angry people turning left at Sunset and Fountain and finally hit a decent clip back on Santa Monica.
Bottom line, city planners: Don't close two major boulevards at the same time. 'k?
