There are lessons to be learned from the recent tragic accident involving the overturning of an RTD bus on the Hollywood Freeway at the Western off-ramp.
I was on of the victims of the catalytic gridlock that was caused by the shutdown of the northbound lanes. What takes 15 minutes from Wilshire boulevard to Los Feliz took me 1 hour and 35 minutes.
During that time my automobile was the target of three reckless drivers; I witnessed a fist fight; and I got out and yelled at someone myself, who had more that 40 cars behind him and was "waiting to pick up my wife."
I also waited at an intersection and watched the light change more than a dozen times, since cars blocked the intersection.
