I had to work almost every day during this holiday season, but I enjoyed a vacation of sorts, thanks to those of you who didn't. My 35-mile daily commute -- from Porter Ranch in the San Fernando Valley to the Times building in downtown Los Angeles -- went from a slog to a breeze. The traffic drop-off happens every December: Thousands of school buses are off the streets, hundreds of businesses scale back, and countless residents head out of town or stay close to home and off the freeways.

Southbound traffic was completely stopped for about 30 minutes before authorities opened up one lane at about 1:30 p.m. Traffic was backed up for miles to the El Toro Y. “It's huge.

Re "CHP May Get to Hire 270 Officers," June 1: I am glad to read that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has agreed to fill some or all of the vacant California Highway Patrol positions, perhaps hiring as many as 270 officers. I have a better idea: Hire even more and put them out on our freeways writing citations to all drivers who flagrantly disregard our traffic laws by speeding, tailgating and weaving through traffic lanes. Not only would this make our highways safer and reduce gasoline consumption (as average speed is reduced)
